Product DescriptionUse this item to delete the steering oar unit and steering oar from a canoe sail kit you are ordering today and substitute in the complete side rudder unit. This item number can only be used with a canoe sail kit purchase. We like sailing with a steering oar. But we know some prefer a conventional rudder. The advantage of the rudder is less arm effort, less drag. The advantage of the steering oar is lower cost and you have steering control even if the boat loses forward momentum. Also, the steering oar system is more portable (breaks down smaller and weighs less.)

This rudder unit attaches like a canoe motor mount: Crossbar clamps across the gunwales and sticks out on one side, and rudder pivots off the crossbar. This is the complete unit: crossbar, rudder mount, gunwale clamps, rudder, tiller and hiking stick. Kick-up blade. The steering oar system will be deleted from your order.
Standard blade is phenolic. Upgrade of blade material available (click) to polycarbonate for greater shatter resistance.
