Hey everyone,

First post here but I've been lurking for a couple of years. :) . I have a Tsunami 125 that I am interested in putting a rudder kit on. I was just curious if anyone has any experience with installing one and just how big of a job it is? I've looked online and there isn't much info on how to do the install. Thanks.

there are a couple of how-to videos at:
  Why do you feel you need one?

I have a 14.5' touring Necky, and feel absolutely no need for a rudder. I took the rudder off.
  What year Tsunami is it?

Do you know what year the Tsunami is? Alot of the recent year models already of the tubes inserted in them so you can just slide the rudder lines through. Go to if so and you should be able to find the Wilderness System's rudder ready kit's. I have installed a few rudders and they are pretty simple, especially if it already has the rudder tubes installed.

There is really no need for a rudder on that boat.
