that tend to create weather helm when sailing in shallow water I believe.
I would tend to consider a forward off-centereboard and a larger
rudder taking some of the leeway something like CAMPER 640. Bolger
seems to favor this system on some of his more recent designs.
Article about weighted rudders here:
There is also a quick-release dagger board design that has been used
on catamarans over in Holland for the past 20 years.
It would probably not work with a weighted dagger board.
