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

Curtis Taylor: A decent movie.  I enjoyed it as well as my churchgoing parents.  The story of Noah is not so much as a Christian story as it is a Jewish story.  Open-minded viewers should give it a chance.

LordWallace1: I  SOOOOOOOO AGREEEEEEEEEEEEE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAY IN THIS VIDEO. People is always looking for purpose, for reasons to exists... we are dogs with a bigger and more powerfull brain...that's it. And so what? Dogs are faster.. we think we're in a higher state just because we priorize the "brain" over other skills. And i can even say that dogs are smarter (purpose of intelligence should be the quest to happiness)...and they live life, they enjoy, they live in a constant "inocent" way that gives them more pleasure and more enjoyment of life. We humans are soooo stupid... we give glory and billons to soccer players like messi or cristiano ronaldo and we say "hey, they are sooo fast, soo strong", dude, put any of them racing agains a dog,leopard, tiger...they would be sooo slow, or put them to fight without guns agains a lion... they would be dead meat in seconds and i don't see anyone paying millons to those lions, dogs or tigers eh... You know why so many people picks religions? Because they are so afraid of whats gonna happen to them when they die, they cannot accept the concept of emptyness that "death" represents. What they really don't question is : "dude i have news for you... you where in the state of "dead" billons of years before you were born.... so THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE"
Steven Dominguez: I had no idea this even existed
