Did this video help you?

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.

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

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.

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

A. M. Goudarzi: what a great looking dog! I love this Max fella! 
KarateMikeMiami: I found you guys when I had to step up my tools for a remodeling project and really enjoy your videos. I bought the brushed M18 compact as well as the DCD790 to do my own comparison but the Dewalt brushless battery life was superior. Home Depot does not sell the compact Fuel drill/driver, you have to order it. I read the lithium ion in Milwaukee loses capacity after only a few cycles so I stuck with Dewalt. You both use the DCD790 as a daily, correct? I love the drill but I had to track down one with no chuck wobble. I looked at several and even found a video of the problem. Have you noticed it on your models? Also, I found that Lowes carried the newer heat sink 2.0XR (DCB203) pack but Home Depot does not. (202 only) Will all the 20v batteries get the heat sink or just the 2.0? Thank you for the entertainment!
Tony Wilhoit: The leader says "hook tools for bowl turning" but the quality, and lighting of the video is poor. It's not until the end that there are any pictures to show the tools. Do you have any more information on these tools? Maybe you can show how to make them?
Mr_Fich: Will he be on your ebay page???
