Imagine, very soothingly, you are sailing your boat and out of the blue, your boat feels a sudden urge to fall towards the left. “Oh wait! We have to go forward!”- Shout all you want, the boat will go in the direction it wants to. So, how to communicate with your boat in a better way?
By using a Rudder pedal! It becomes the signal through which you can control and communicate with your boat even better.
WHY Rudder Pedals?
A boat can be controlled with a skeg as well as rudder pedals. However, the reason we prefer rudder pedals over a skeg is that it enables you to steer the kayak with your feet and keep it sailing despite the heavy tides misbalancing your kayak.
A rudder pedal is also used in an aircraft where it serves a similar purpose. It enables the pilot to counter adverse yaw and p-factor to keep the plane stable and flying!
However, this article strives to take you to a rudder pedal which would be a perfect companion along with your kayak as you sail through the lake!
How To Use Rudder Pedals?
The main purpose of using rudder pedals is to keep your kayak straight in the line. The wind blowing or the rides flowing will naturally make your kayak want to turn into their direction so to prevent this from happening, this is where you will use a rudder pedals to counter the wind and keep your kayak straight.
“Where to set it up?”- The effectiveness of your rudder pedals depends a lot on this. The water hitting your boat will hit at the sides of your boat (the bow area) while the area which is past the center of your boat (the stern) won’t experience any water hitting it. This creates a low-pressure zone over there which means the side wind won’t affect the stern of your boat.
Hence, the stern does not follow the wind’s direction but the bow does. So to balance this out, this is where the rudder pedals come in. You attach a rudder pedals at the stern of your boat which makes sure to cancel out the wind’s effect on the bow by providing a forward force. So if you use your kayak in a windy area, only three things are necessary: A reliable kayak, a good rudder pedals and your passion for it!
