Yes we call them rudders. For an airboat you can use an air rudder or water rudder.

If you want an air rudder, you'll have to make one yourself.

I'm not sure if a water rudder off of an outrigger or tunnel hull designed boat will work. I'm assuming it would....since I have no experience with them.

Good luck with your build!

If you do a SEARCH in this forum on 'rudder' you should come to some posts that show several of my rudder set-ups that were posted a while back. Also pics and a little description of them.
