I purchased this kit from a wooden kayak manufacturing company since it was on sale (considerable price savings) but found that the items included for the wooden boat were all I needed, with the exception of a wooden bridge and plastic rudder stop (thing that keeps the rudder locked straight when stowed). I need something higher for the Cayuga, but everything else was of great quality and fit very well. Overall a great deal considering the drastic price savings. Highly recommended rudder kit. It turned a superb rec kayak into a maneuverable and seaworthy touring boat.
