Wilderness Systems Rudder Kit

  • Shipping Weight: 6.5
  • 0 Units in Stock
  • Brand: Wilderness Systems

Course Control Rudder Kit for ALL Wilderness Systems roto-molded plastic kayaks. The redesigned rudder blade has a foil-shape for more efficiency and less drag in the water. The rudder pin is also redesigned. The Course Control Rudder Assembly can only be used with Wilderness Systems style rudder brackets (aka Mid-Pin). This kit takes the place of the old rudder kit part number 8025413. This stock Harmony photo only shows the major components in the kit. The kit comes with allot of extra parts and mounting hardware, similar to the older rudder kit at the link above.

For use with all Wilderness Systems kayaks (planned for use with plastic hulls, should be applicable to composite as well) that require an external square stern rudder bracket. This rudder kit will fit: Tarpon series, Tsunami series, Pamlico solo series, Pamlico two-man series (requires additional Tandem Supplemental Rudder Kit, sold separately), Ride series (the pre 2006 original Ride requires additional part, call 603-323-8090), Cape Horn series as well as the Mad River Canoe Synergy series. May also be applicable to the Perception Sport Destiny 12 and Perception Sport Pescador. This kit is not intended for some older WS brand kayaks such as the Sealution, where an extra bracket is is needed. Wilderness Systems no longer makes a Rudder Ready Kit! The only difference is the plastic tube and some mounting hardware.

This kit comes with instructions and all the parts needed for installation. Instructions are broad and may not address your Wilderness Systems kayak model directly. Call WS Tech support if needed: 888-52-KAYAK
