Tie about 12" of 1/8th or 3/16th good quality line to the rudder pins, halfway up/down, that is between the upper and lower part of the casting. Tie the blue-white bungee to that. Thread the blue-white on the outside via the first s/s ring, then in through the dolphin striker, then through the next s/s ring, back to the other rudder. May need to adjust for some tensioning. Works well.

AHA! There's the missing piece! I now remember that 3/16" line dead ended in the hole drilled in the aft/transom gunwhale on my 16. There are three other 18's in the storage lot at Clinton Lake and have yet to see or meet anyone and I'm not one to pull off covers to snoop.
Really like the wings, will definitely keep them. I'm assuming can't use them in a regatta? Haven't raced since '85 Mid-Eastern Championships.
p.s. Thanks John & nice "site" p.s.
