Kick-up rudders have been used successfully for years, where the rudder blade is pivoted in the case and will swing back. But they come with one annoying problem - they are just about impossible to steer with when swung back to reduce draft for shallow water. Daggerboard rudders solve this problem by lifting vertically, and have also been around for years, but also come with a problem - they cannot kick back. Thus if one hits anything the rudder can be destroyed, or worse, ripped off the transom.

The F-82 daggerboard rudder was designed to help overcome these problems and more details are at www.f-boat.com/pages/news/F-82rudder.html

Construction is all composite, epoxy/carbon/glass, and downloadable plans in PDF format are now available. These will be emailed within 24 hours after order.
