Smaller rudder for Hurricane?

Does anyone produce a smaller rudder for the Hurricane that the 9" model it comes standard with? If not specific for Hurricane, do other brands/designs work or can be modified to work?

I am often paddling in small conditions and from what I have learned, smaller rudder = more speed.

I used a K1 rudder (size of a cigarette packet) on an OC2 for the Murray River Marathon, mainly so that it hides in the shadow of the hull rocker and minimizes hitting submerged logs rather than speed advantages. The Hurricane high aspect ratio rudder is already a low drag design, paddling with a light Ama will get you more speed.
