I decided to try installing an additional rudder control lever on my PA12 in hopes of stopping the "wobbling" effect.

It worked quite well!!!

I realized that I was ever so slightly leaning when I used the single rudder lever and causing the boat to feel "tippy" and difficult to track.

Two levers seems to be a significant improvement for a cost of $9.99.

When I put my hands on both levers the boat tracks perfectly and stays in balance. I have also noticed that a second lever allows for quick adjustments with either hand while fishing.

Maybe it is just a Placebo effect...either way it appears to be an improvement.

I agree. May be something to the placebo thing but I feel more in control. If it feels good, do it!! :D
