Please provide Tides with the exact rudder stock diameter (.000") you have decided to use and the length of the tube you require. Tube length can be determined by calculating the distance from the bottom of the hull, through the rudder shelf to that point above the rudder shelf which you have determined is optimal for installing other steering system components (rudder collars, steering arms, etc.).
If you provide Tides with drawings of your installation, Tides will recommend one or more solutions for your installation.
