4” flat water rudder

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Four-Inch Flatwater Rudder is 4″ x 4″, allowing less drag in flat water and better clearance for shallow waters. It also has enough force to keep you on track, so long as the water chop is not steep enough to lift the tail of the canoe.

Because of its small profile, we do not recommend you take this rudder out in choppy conditions, and definitely not on a downwind run. However, it is ideal for flat water paddling and shallow waters or rivers that do not kick up any waves.

A great 2nd rudder if you have a standard surf or weed rudder.
