Pakayak is rudder-ready so you can add one if you like. The Trucourse™ rudder will fit on the stern. You’ll also need this Trucourse™ rudder gudgeon. The cables will quickly disconnect from the foot pedals and roll up into the stern section. That way the rudder and cables nest in the pack. When you assemble, pull the cables through holes in the aft bulkhead and attach to each foot pedal. Total time to hook up cables: about 30 seconds. By the way, the rudder stays in place on the stern section.
The foot braces are flag style adjustable and can be used for a rudder, like above.
