Complete HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) kick-up rudder for the Capri 16.5.
The HDPE rudder blade is solid plastic, carved by machine from a single block. No fiberglass to split, chip or crack, and no wood or foam core to absorb water. Includes our deluxe tiller created using only the finest white ash with hard, dense and extra strong African mahogany. It's elegant shape and added strength make it the finest tiller available. 3/8" diameter pintles are also included.
Owners typically experience much lighter tiller
effort, crisper tacking
and improved pointing as a result of the improved airfoil section. You will experience better slow speed maneuverability while docking as well.
HDPE rudders are so robust that we can avoid the plywood packaging necessary when fiberglass rudders are shipped via UPS. This saves you a $50.00 packaging charge.

3)When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
Caution: Never leave any rudder sitting in the sun in the back of your pickup. With half the rudder immersed while moored, water will dissipate any heat buildup. But while stored, heat may damage the rudder. A Fiberglass rudder may expand and split at the seams. A polyethylene rudder may warp. Always store your rudder out of the direct sun.
