my hobie's rudders are fine, they dont hum but i have a laser and it hums when im going fast. i know why it hums and is there any way i can get my hobie to hum when im going really fast. i think it adds to the fun when you trapping going super fast while your boat is humming that tells you that your hauling!

The humming does kind of add to the experience. I like to think that the larger monohulls hear me zipping by them at 2 or 3 times their speed.

sounds like you need to find someone whose rudders are known to hum (Rojoyinc seems to have a set)
