@cloinc Great. Rudder is sound. Let everyone know what you end up doing for the steering control.

Great to hear and sorry you struggled! I'd like to see your project and how it worked out. It's a balance as to how much effort and detail you put into an instructable since many users want to incorporate their own ideas, customizations/adaptations and improvements based on what materials they have available and to be honest, I expected the chances of an Ocean Kayak user doing this were slim. I'm interested to see how you ended up doing the steering. I am looking to simplify it because in use, you don't have to be actively steering all the time, only set it for wind or tide or when you want to turn.
Where do you find your crimps?
I am almost done, I have it built and mounted and I will be building the steering part of it tomorrow. Hopefully all goes a lot smoother this time. It took awhile to figure out the dimensions but I think I've got it as close as it will get. I wil upload pics tomorrow and I'll give dimensions if anyone need them to make life 1000 times easier.
I am in the process of making this, well trying to. I am having an issue because a majority of the key measurements are not listed so I am resorting to using a ruler and your pic with a ruler present and breaking it down to centimeters to try to convert to inches and that's just ridiculous.. It's working but taking way to long and way to many attempts. Great job and great idea just next time maybe list your measurements not just a handful of them so people like me can put it all together quickly and then waste our time adjusting accordingly to our kayak. Thanks
