SAFETY RUDDER

The safety rudder’s blade can pivot around a large pin, and it is bolted to its vertical position through a sacrificial pin (M10 screw), that breaks up when the rudder impacts a floating object or a rock.

Rudder blade rotates backwards and the impact is not transmitted to the boat, avoiding the risk of a hull crack or damage. After impact, the rudder is still functional, and can be restored very easily, simply replacing the sacrificial screw, with the boat still in the water.
