Re: Rudder end-plates on a Micro
> Singapore trainer? must look that one up.The easiest way to describe the Singapore trainer is as one of the shapely pulling boats, Spur II I think, enlarged to a little over 30 feet. It was for a naval training school. PB&F published a picture in MAIB of the finished boat dashing along in a breeze with about 15 men aboard. It's a complex shape and not a simple build.
IMHO (and I'm not a builder so I should really hold my tongue), the project you have in mind is getting to the size where you don't want to compromise the cost of materials by using an over-simple shape.
