I'm Abigail Scott, an author, adventurer, and mother of three. When I'm not navigating the beautiful chaos of motherhood, you can find me tackling the turbulent waters as a professional whitewater kayaker or scaling impressive rock faces as a climbing guide. The rush of adrenaline, whether from kayaking or climbing, is a feeling I cherish deeply. But the thrill doesn't stop there; I capture the breathtaking allure of nature through my lens as a professional photographer. And when I'm not submerged in the wild, my software engineering skills amplify my outdoor pursuits, allowing me to harness technology in unique ways. Through my writings, whether articles or blog posts, I share not just my adventures but my heart, hoping to spark a flame of inspiration in others to break boundaries and experience the world's wonders.

Wilderness Systems Rudder Kit

Wilderness Systems Rudder Kit

Description

Wilderness Systems Rudder Kit is a near-universal kit that services all current and many older Wilderness Systems solo kayaks. It includes footbraces, solo size rudder assembly, cables, tubes, and hardware to fit both rudder-ready and non-rudder ready kayaks. This kit is not designed for use with tandem kayaks; for tandem models, you can check out the rudder kit for Wilderness Systems Tarpon 135T.

This add-on accessory provides enhanced maneuverability for your kayak. It can be installed on several Wilderness Systems models, including ATAK, Radar, Tsunami, Tarpon 105, 120, and 140 sizes. Additionally, it can be installed on Pamlico tandem kayaks with the Supplemental Rudder Kit. It is also compatible with several older kayak models.

The Wilderness Systems Rudder Kit is perfect for kayakers who want improved control and maneuvering capabilities. Whether you're navigating through rough waters or simply want more precise steering, this kit has you covered.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is this compatible with a Wilderness Systems Tsunami 165?

A: It will as long as your kayak has the molded-in flat place to mount it. It is a small flat area of about 3 inches square. Everything else will work fine. I put mine on a Pungo 140 and had to make an adapter bracket because the Pungo line is not designed for a rudder.

Q: Can this kit be used to install a rudder on a Wilderness Systems Manteo?

A: The Manteo was not designed to accept a rudder.

Q: Does it fit the older model Wilderness 160i?

A: Yes, it will fit if it has the mounting holes on the back of the unit.

Q: Is this compatible with Wilderness 115 Ride?

A: Yes, it is compatible with Wilderness 115 Ride.
