I tried searching but so far haven't found anything regarding a bigger rudder for the compass. I tested out a camo compass and while the rudder was enough for regular use it didn't inspire confidence that it would work for sailing or rougher conditions. I did figure out it doesn't turn at all when the rudder isn't deployed. I found that out pretty quick. But I'm going to buy the sail kit and I noticed the compass rudder is a bit different from the old upgraded "sailing" rudder. So if anyone of you have an insight I would very much appreciate it.

I made this procedure on the new Outback 2019, but this rudder blade can also be put on Compass.
I've adapted big rudder blade from Pro Angler :)

Does anyone know how to remove compass rudder? Not sure if it's similar to the new Outback but it's different than the PA.
