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

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

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....

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.

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.

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?

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!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
