    Found some on ebay under key words: "Skeg, Keel, Fin Replacement Intex Challenger". They sell them every few weeks & the sell out quickly. They are actually an improved design & they sell at about $15.00. They float too, in case it falls in the water. They fit very tight so they won't come loose. I went crazy looking online for a replacement last August (2015) and finally found one there. Good luck

No rudder system is available for INFLATABLE kayaks. They are no good for oceans or lakes only a swimming pool. Get a good solid Ocean Kayak or other brand that is RIGID. Your life may depend on it.

Drive unit error navpilot 511


That errors means the autopilot is trying to move the rudder but it thinks its not moving. If you can manually move the rudder in standby mode with the green or red buttons on the 511, then the problem is typically with the rudder feedback unit. i.e. the rudder is moving but the only way the pilot knows it is if the signal changes from the rudder feedback unit.

If you can't make the pump work with the arrows (or anything else) then the problem lies with the pump. Check 12VDC to the pump and the connection to the processor.

Rudder reference unit


Hi, the first thing I would do is check the wiring from the course computer to the feedback, on both ends and also check the rudder feedback mechanical link to the rudder.
It is possible that the problem is in the course computer but a problem with the feedback wiring or the feedback itself is much more likely. If the wiring looks ok and the mechanical connection looks ok, I would then check the feedback potentiometer to make sure it moves smoothly when the rudder moves. You can check it with an ohm meter. Depending on what it reads, you can then replaces the feedback or do further troubleshooting. The feedback is a just a 5k ohm potentiometer. Here are instruction on how to test a potentiometer.
95% of the time, problems like this are problems related to the feedback and not the course computer. I don't know if there is a reset for the computer, I would have to call the factory and ask, the manuals don't mention it. If it turns out that you do need a new feedback, I just so happen to have a new one in my shop.

MOT POW SWAPPED, this is the message which appear just like that. the autopilot is working last 5 years, i have checked the wires connections, all is set as the diagram. one thing: my rudder has some...


Check if rudder reference unit is installed as before ,it seems that the pilot sense that the rudder is turning the wrong way. check when giving +10 command the
rudder turns to increase the heading,if yes, it could be the wiring of the rudder reference unit or it was installed the wrong way after service on the rudder.
Is rudder position indicating correctly?

Is it worth get a skeg (non moving rudder)($75) for my old town Loon tandem kayak or should i go all out and get a rudder system for it ($250) i have trouble keeping it straight when going in rivers


We have a 20ft Necky Tofino, and I installed a new SmartTrack rudder system on it last year. My wife is 5'2" and I'm 5'11", and we both love it because it's easily adjustable while you're sitting in the kayak. We can switch seats at any time with no problem.

The whole thing came to $250 with a spare blade.

Slider to which the pegs are attached is probably binding, take entire mechanism out (2 screws), and lubricate with silicone wax. If that doesn't work, replace sliders and pegs.
