Anyone within proximity of St. Louis that can install a canoe rudder system quickly? Otherwise, will go with a much heavier option for Riverthon on 9/17. PM or reply here. Thanks in advance for suggestions / considerations.

Steve W,
Did you any luck with the rudder system installation?
Im looking at taking on a winter project of installing a rudder to my Sawyer.
Just curious, if you found someone who is building canoe rudders
thanks

Hi Dinger19,

Ryan Slebos near KC installed a really nice rudder / pedal system & really knows his stuff! He accommodated my request for a custom rudder based on the Kruger Sea Wind rudder. His usual rudder is different and I'm sure very good. The rudder works beautifully with the pedals, which are fully adjustable. The system is simple in design, which is a plus on the river. Ryan also did a couple of other modifications and was very reasonable on charges.

Could not find someone in St. Louis but in hindsight, have to say the long trip for drop-off & pickup were well worth it Smiley. Would recommend contacting Ryan if interested.

As always, paddle safe.

Steve W.
