I need help locating any images for a rudder mod used to help keep your H16 rudders locked in. I've heard about some type of spring/bungee rope setup that helps lock your rudders back in place. Great when your hitting jellyfish etc.

Cheers Matt. I swear I've looked over the catalogue a million times but never considered this. Looks simple enough and I believe the fixtures are already installed on my rudders - I just need to bungee cord. Does anybody have any tips or photos of these installed? Whats the general rule for bungee length and thinkness? Looks to be simular to that used on trap return kit??

I've been curious about this kit for a while now. Why don't I see it on any of the newer boats?
