I always enjoy your comments here and elsewhere in kayak cyberspace. Enjoy your website as well.
I like things simple. Rudders are for sailing kayaks. EXCEPT for my Triple. It has no rudder. It goes straight, that's it. Strong sweep strokes with a 240 cm paddle and big blade get me only slow coarse changes. Edged turns? Try getting my 9, 8, or 4 year old kids, or even my darling-but-kayak-timid wife, to try edging a 21 ft by 30 in. boat . . . forget about it. Now that is a boat that could use a big rudder.
