xK18 Rudder?

The hull card for my 1971 XK18 states “rudder under seat “. I’m confused because I believe jet boats don’t have rudders. Am I missing something?

Yeah, there was an auxiliary rudder that could be mounted under the nozzle. They were helpful on deceleration and to a lesser extent at low speeds. Shipped not installed.
