I replaced the stock rudder on my X45 with the larger model. Selling the stock one. Good shape, no dings. Dark marks are just grease smears from removal. $100 plus shipping

Why did you replace your rudder?

Mastercraft changed to a larger rudder in 2006. Ill try out the new rudder this weekend, but with larger boats as the 45, supposed to be a huge difference in handling.

Wow, I'm looking forward to your results! I may change mine out if you notice a big difference. Please let me know and thank you!

I changed my rudder to the newer larger rudder on both my '03 Maristar 230 and my '05 X-star.....huge improvement on both! All of these boats need that larger rudder.

I also upgraded mine, huge difference. Kept the old rudder in case a spare was ever needed.
