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

Maheen YOS: Does this indra work with Fuji xt2?
Mdabld: Obviously a blasting mishap for the boulders to roll down. I have experience with blasters and they normally are perfect and it avoids months and months of hydra hammering that is very noisy. The blaster has insurance for the reason if they screw up. There is a lot there that these people own and have the right to build on it. They were issued a permit by the city of phoenix or PV. Its ok for you guys to live in your house that was built on undeveloped land but you have a problem with someone else building on their lot. If you don't like it buy up the lots and donate them to the mountain preserve.
