I think I learn the following from a forum in here.
Want to back straight,(single prop) shift your rudder approx 30 degrees to port, go slow, it will back straight... I say 30 degrees because, on my boat, someplace between 25 and 30 degrees.... Of course everything changes if you have significant tidal effect, wind effect and current effect. Practice practice practice.
At least now you have a starting point.

Articulating Rudder

The cost of the rudder was $3933 US, but I don't remember the cost of installation, and my records are on the boat which is in storage in Alexandria Bay, NY. So I won't get on the boat again until spring. However the installation was done by Winter Harbor Marina in Brewerton, NY. If you give them a call, they may be able to give you an estimate.
