Slightly off topic, but some of the folks at the Yahoo Bagboater group were talking about a Pakboats skeg that can be strapped on like a Feathercraft skeg.

I'm not certain how to put this diplomatically but, bluntly, why would you want to put a rudder on a Swift? It is not in any of the categories where you would want a rudder, and the rudder would slow you down significantly. Chris's response is right on the money-- if you're sure you want a directional aid, consider a skeg.

[...] I would like to have the option to put one on like I have on my two hardbodies. It doesn't mean I will have it on all the time. I would just like to have the option. If someone knows of a rudder, like the Folbot's, that would fit on the Swift, I would appreciate the knowledge. Thank you.

Hello qball,

I also would like to learn and experience using rudder; so, I can decide for myself.

I hope someone can help! Closest thing on the market is strap (skeg), not rudder.
