Q:I do not have a rudder on my ocean kayak prowler . Is this an issue with the wind paddle?Asked on 3/16/2013 by bill
A:I have a skeg on my kayak which I always have deployed when in the
water. I don't know the answer through experience.
You might contact the manufacturer directly. They have several videos on
their site that might help.Answered on 3/16/2013 by Anonymous
A:Bill, a rudder can help with the maneuverability using the sail but it's not necessary. You can master direction with the sail and a bit of help from your paddle.Answered on 3/16/2013 by Clyde from NRS
