Cory, that don't look good. That shaft and strut look like they have seen better days.

This is my 2012 Centurion

polarbill 06-07-2012 3:53 PM

Is that piece in the middle of the rudder for small adjustments?

krbaugh 06-07-2012 3:58 PM

Yes with this style you dont have to get out a grinder to adjust the tourqe on the wheel

A better question is how did the rudder come off in hundreds of feet of water....

wakebrdjay 06-07-2012 8:00 PM

I thought I've hear of every fettish, but a rudder fettish.....?

Looks like Cory's boat is set up to compensate for wakesurfing list.
Kevin, didn't know Centurion offered gold plated running gear for 2012.
That ghost rudder is sweet! What's that propeller do? Isn't that a jet boat, with those ports on the transom? (if I had a dime for every time....)
Good Lord, look at the tube bends on that G23 trailer!
I like that Malibu boat lift...very natural looking. Definitely keeps the shoreline in a natural looking state.

wakebrdjay 06-08-2012 7:45 AM

I like the strutless kinked shaft option on that BU.

It looks like bad casting combined with fatigue. From the oxidation on the shaft, it had some hairline cracks before snapping off during a routine turn.

krbaugh 06-08-2012 10:11 AM

not gold plated just VERY new

WOW big differences in the shapes of those rudders keep them coming!!

thanks

bjames 06-08-2012 10:21 AM

Err... not the correct way to beach a boat :D

here is mine 08 Falcon V

cadunkle 06-08-2012 12:26 PM

Nearly all of the newew boats seem to have that style of rudder. I need to change the rudder in my '89 Supra and will be going with that style as it's the most common and affordable. It's a bit smaller than the factory one but people say it tracks well and can't really tell any difference at slow speeds. Is anyone running a different style of rudder than those pictured above?

a couple of the MasterCraft Rudders

jaybee 06-09-2012 1:37 PM

Mastercraft rudders are ABSOLUTE SH*T!!!!!!! I have water coming in mine in my 09 X-2 and I have heard it is a pretty common problem. Bring on another hefty bill. 1 thing is for sure. I WILL NEVER BUY A MC AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

duffymahoney 06-09-2012 2:14 PM

Most rudders are made by the same company. They are a couple simple o rings and zerts for grease. The o-rings have worn out or dried out on a few of my boats over the years and needed to be replaced.

Side note: Epic boats have dual rudders.

krbaugh 06-09-2012 3:20 PM

yep they come in many shapes and sizes but work the same way
