Not sure what the change to rudder is, I run an adjustable rudder that I keep from year to year.

I have seen the new PP, but have not water tested it yet.

cool! How does it work? Are those side bars like shock absorbers or more like an adjustable brace?

New Rudder (http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=5542&page=2&pp=40) is NICE, you should drive it prior to installing your adjustable rudder for sure.

So '06 TT boats will be in RED? :banana:

Adjustable Braces

I'll have to try the new rudder, looks like a huge change - and apparently for the better.
