I'm selling my onno p-41 kick up rudder. It's a high quality hand made carbonfiber piece hand made in the usa. Description is here:

Onno P-41

I paid US$ 300 plus an additional $25 for the mounting bracket. Additionally, I have optimized the set up for use with an epic ski. Specifically, I have added spectra lines, micro adjust turnbuckles, and an extra epic rudder clamp on a stainless steel shaft. This allows it to be changed from kick up to an understern rudder in just a couple of minutes and without having to touch the original rudder lines.

I used the rudder occasionally for one season. I am selling it because I just don't paddle in shallow water enough that I need it. As far as kick up rudders go, I think it is the best looking one out there, and with the true carbon fiber foil shape, probably the fastest of the bunch.

Compared to the epic understern weedless rudder there are some pros and cons you should bear in mind. Overall there is less drag than the epic weedless. In flat water races, My personal best with this rudder is 1 minute per hour faster that with the epic. When you hit a thick floating patch of weeds with this rudder, there barely a perceptible loss in speed. The epic, while it does shed the weeds in that situation, loses a lot of speed in doing so. The other place this rudder is superior is if there are rocks, logs, or shallows that would catch an understern rudder.

The main disadvantage to this (and any other) kick-up rudder, is that it does not turn the boat as quickly as an understern. And, because of its location on the back of the boat, it is in the air and useless when surfing anything but the smallest waves.

I'm looking for $US 200 for the rudder including the mounting bracket, lines, turnbuckles, clamp, and rudder shaft.
