Ocean Kayak Rudder Kit - Drifter, Zest, P15
Give your boat some direction.
Use this rudder kit to install a rudder on your Ocean Kayak Drifter, Zest, or P15 boat and trim your kayak when the wind wants to blow you off course. With just a few tools and a little bit of time, you'll have the foot pedals installed and the cables set, and you'll be able to attach the rudder at the stern without having to duct-tape anything together. Once you're on the water, this rudder drops into the water and is easily controlled from the cockpit so you can free up your hands for the important bit called 'paddling'.
- Kit includes installation hardware (nuts, bolts, rivets and screws, two 15-foot rudder cables, 14 feet of tubing, one rudder bracket, one cam cleat, one rudder blade, six inches of shrink tubing, two foot pegs with rails, one shock cord, one six-inch hatch with cat bag)
- Ocean Kayak indicates that you will need the following tools for installation: a drill with 3/8in & 13/64in bits, rivet gun, 4in hole saw, lighter, crimper or pliers, wire cutter, hot glue gun, #2 Phillips screwdriver, 7/16in & 3/8in wrench, knife or scissors, tape, silicone, safety goggles and a 3-4 foot long strip of wire (ex. straightened coat hanger)
