Rudder Kit, Current Model Old Town Kayaks
A complete rudder kit just for current model Old Town kayaks.
We buy parts direct from Old Town and include specific instructions for your kayak model so that we can offer you new rudder kits for current models or classic Old Town models discontinued years ago.
A rudder helps the boat track (go straight) even in difficult conditions, like wind and currents. A rudder can also help you turn, with foot pedal controls, without interrupting your forward paddle strokes and momentum. Rudders are very helpful on tandem kayaks.
The Blade rudder system allows you to easily raise or lower the rudder while seated in the cockpit. Each kit comes with the rudder, mounting hardware, and detailed instructions for installation.
Available online for Loon 160t tandem, Loon 15 tandem, Castine, Nantucket, Cayuga (110, 130, 146 and 160) and Dirigo Tandem Plus.
Important; your kayak needs to have 4 nuts molded into the stern OR an existing hole at the stern end which the rudder shaft may be mounted! Some Older models may not have these features. Exception being the Dirigo Tandem Plus (or Dirigo XT Tandem Plus) for which we have two rudder kits... one for versions with a hole at the stern and the other for versions with four nuts molded into the stern (2013+). New models like Predator 13 and Predator XL have 4 nuts molded into the stern to hold the Rudder mount bracket.
Call us to order if you need a rudder for an older Old Town kayak model or one we do not show here. For older models such as Loon's, Castine and Nantucket it is helpful for us to know which of two footrest styles are in your kayak, so we may send the most ideal parts with the kit. Not sure? call us; 1-800-452-9257.
