Anyone know if a new style tunable rudder will work on a '97 Prostar 190? Or if there is any tunable rudder that is available for the boat? I have my original rudder pretty dialed in but I would like to experiment with even more additional pull but don't really want to keep grinding.

Take a look now. User error on my part the first time around.

Brian - We make the new Tournament Team Rudders. The rudders are cast with the angle on the trailing edge. Let me know if you'd like to try one. Eric

I didn't know MC ever put a tunable, i.e., trim tabbed, rudder on its boats. Like Eric mentioned, I thought, for the 197, it was either loaded or not.

After PMing Eric I found out that you are correct. It is called a tunable but does not have a trim tab adjustment on it like a couple of other brands have. The tunable MC rudder is just pre-beveled for additional load and for ease of additional filing if wanted.

Guess I am just going to have to get the file out again. :D

I'm about to go grinder on mine. I was the last year before std. tunable rudders. My P.O. filed it neutral and I want to make it go right, which with rh rotation, is no small feat.

Why not file it to go left since that is the natural tendency of your boat? I still say you should just drop the benjamins on the updated rudder.
