That's what I'm hoping. My wife is very interested in low speed (idle) maneuverability. We go out Thursday night. I'll return and report.

Sounds good. Looks like a petty easy install. Thanks

Handling at speed was significantly improved, but handling at idle (AKA marina) was not. Overall, I'm satisfied with the upgrade. That's my report.

No downside to this swap?

Perhaps. My 12 year old daughter was driving the boat for a tube ride for my son and his 4 friends (huge 6-person tube) and was aggressive enough to flip the tube. He may think there's downside.

Other than the cost of the rudder...no downside.

Sorry to threadjack

Love it, i am a firm believer in getting the kids driving early. Raise them on the water they handle themselves better when older. Anyone can buy a boat, but not everyone has experience enough to drive one...
