Rudder Kit, Classic Model Old Town Kayaks
A complete rudder kit for classic model Old Town kayaks no longer in production (or older variations of current models).
We buy parts direct from Old Town and include specific Old Town 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 few really of the old models did not have specific instructions since at that time the instructions were generic. In that case we may include instructions for a similar Old Town model along with the generic type.
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. Standard setup for a tandem is rear person controls the rudder using the rear footbraces.
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 classic model Old Town kayak needs to have an existing hole at the stern end which the rudder shaft may be mounted! Some Older models may not have this feature. For tandem models the rudder is controlled by the person in the rear seat. It is helpful for us to know which of two footrest styles are currently in your particular kayak, so we may send the most ideal parts with the kit.
Call us to order if you need a rudder for an older Old Town kayak model or one we do not show here. Not sure? email or call us; 1-800-452-9257.
