I bought an adventure island last autumn and I am very satisfied with it (so far.....)!
I received the new (bigger-,sailing-)rudder with it and want to replace that now to get my Hobie ready for spring. One thing is disturbing me, and thats the tiller direction. If you move it to the left, your kayak is steering to the left. And, offcourse, it does the same to the right. (sounds, however, very logical
) But the steering works just opposite of what we are used to with a sailingboat. If you move the tiller away from you, the boat steers towards you. And the other way around.
It is obvious that we can be used to that difference, but if I am replacing the rudder anyway I wondered if it gives a problem when I convert the internallines so that they work opposite to the standard steering.
I hope my question is clear and that someone can answer me on that. Thanks in advance
