Rudder & Mill Creek 16.5

Posted by Darrell on Feb 18, 2006

We are planning on building a Mill Creek 16.5 later this year. When I built the Ches 16 for my wife, she insisted on a rudder. I installed the Feathercraft Single Rudder Kit sold by CLC. After many seasons of paddling, the rudder has touched the water but once or twice. Of course, I try and refrain from pointing that fact out. ;-)

I'd like to take the rudder off the Ches 16 and use it on the MC 16.5. Is the single rudder adequate for the MC 16.5 that will only be paddled (not sailed)?

Thanks, Darrell
