adding a rudder

Post by cstrijek » Sat Dec 28, 2019 7:31 am

Has anyone created a removable rudder for lake paddling? I'm looking at doing a trip to Lapland with some big lakes to cross and without a rudder of some kind I see it being a very frustrating journey with all that side-to-side motion.

Do you mean rudder or skeg? There are plenty of people who have installed removable skegs on their packrafts - there are even commercially available kits you can buy online ( Anfibio one for example: https://www.packrafting-store.de/Access ... ::691.html ).

There is plenty of discussion on this forum regarding this, for example:
