Did this video help you?

sportstertim: You need a longer paddle, your strokes are too high angle with that one.

brockpierce1984: seems like  great idea.

I build myself also a fixed rudder on my sit-in fiberglass kayak but mine is going a bit deeper in the water and is easy removable. I havent tried it yet but I hope it will have the same effect as yours.

Its very exhausting to fight the kayak to go straight

uberfy: Yes, it is more difficult to turn. But that's the idea.

dennis mako: is it harder to make turns with the fixed rudder,i have the same boat and theres times the wind and current turn me almost sideways

uberfy: @StealY0urFace Absolutely! Without the extra rudder, I was constantly having to double paddle on one side or the other to keep a straight line in the water. My 12.5 foot model is designed for stability while fishing I think. Once I added the fixed rudder, it was easy to go straight. In fact, I had to work really hard to turn, more like the longer 14 and 15 foot models that I have used in the past.

StealY0urFace: does it really make that big of a difference? thinking about installing one on my Mainstream Kingfisher

Robert Tevault: Lavenda has the bullcrap you see in every anti-Christian claiming to hate religion on one hand, yet who fetishizes all the spiritual diabolism of the other - but from the safety of academic remove. No wonder he admires Lovecraft's science fiction and despises 'religion,' which is always code for 'anti-Christian.' People like this will never openly subscribe to, nor commit to any spiritual guidance. The West is full of these people, flitting around the edges of subjective spiritual commitment, their criticism of 'Western' perspective with its 'outlived' approach to 'religion' nothing but a robotic cliche'.

joe pish: "The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."
