Looking for a little less profile to clear rocks, reef or paddle in shallow water? The Four-Inch Flatwater Rudder does just that. At 4″ x 4″ it also has enough force to keep you on track, so long as the water chop is not steep enough to lift the tail of the canoe.
Because of its small profile, we do not recommend you take this rudder out in choppy conditions, and definitely not on a downwind run. However, it is ideal for flat water paddling and shallow waters or rivers that do not kick up any waves.
A great 2nd rudder if you have a standard surf or weed rudder.
