Great blog you've got there! One difference I noticed between the
two boats,and this will be interesting once the rigging is all set up
and sailing trials begin with Anemone,your rudder had an end-plate
while Anemone does not.This may explain why we experienced lots of
heavy gurgling turbulant water all around the rudder while pulling
tight turns in the St.Lawrence Seaway....In my minds eye,I see the
water flow pinched and increased preasure on the rudder with the end-
plates thus crisper handling.Not anything like say,a LASER, but just
a hightened response with smaller input from the tiller.
Speaking of tillers,how long was the one on your LOOSE MOOSE 2
and did it provide a comfortable lever arm for the rudder? Jean has
yet to build the permanent tiller and the temporary one we used in
the Seaway was about 48 inches long.Being the first time for all who
were on board, we wondered about the optimum length.
Thanks for the link to your nice blog!
Peter Lenihan,who would dearly love to see some sailing shots of
LOOSE MOOSE 2, if for no other reason then to have something to look
forward to come the sailing trials of Anemone,from along the shores
of the mighty St.Lawrence.......
