I would advise an end pour in the stern. I inserted a stainless steel sleeve for the rudder spindle to pivot in, the stern looked too narrow to take the strain a rudder might put on it.

Even as I learn not to need a rudder it is useful on longer paddles with winds and seas working to turn the kayak.

I don't think ypou want to be edging the kayak just to keep straight when theres a sea running.
