Hi Taz,
I fitted a 'Ruddersafe' to my Shetland on both an Evinrude 40hp and then a Honda 9.9
There are some pics of it on http://www.shetland.owners.org.uk/gallery/paul/ruddersafe/ruddersafe.asp
You can get them from http://www.compass24.com/ (search for 'ruddersafe') for £110 or £130. They are expensive, but very well (Dutch) made, and are quite sophisticated in that they can automatically swing up out of the way if you go fast enough to plane, and avoid flipping the boat on a tight turn !

Hi Paul,

I had already seen your article on the Shetland site on ruddersafe - which is tempting - my 610 does wander at slow speeds. Have you noticed any disadvantages with it yet? I suppose I'm a bit worried at taking a hit on the stern, or the stress it might put on the outboard leg. Cheers PaulW

I find it has transformed the boat (from "I'll have to sell this bl***y thing", to "wow, this steers beautifully")

I also recomended it to a friend of a friend locally, who fitted an older, secondhand, rigid aluminium rudder to the leg of his Honda on a 16ft MG dayboat, and he has found the same result, and it has saved the boat for him.

I agree it could be damaged in a rear-end shunt (or the bank!), but there are otherwise no extra stresses on the leg, the power thrust would be much greater than any steering thrust....
