- Slow response to Ducan Kent on enlarging rudder. I added about 8.5
inchs to the rudder last octerber. I used wood for the extention, but
believe a foam core would be better. The larger rudder made a big
difference in the turning radius, but it increased the normal tendency
for the boat to turn to stbd.
At the same time I switched to a tiller, and with the tendency
[under power] to go to stbd. has made steering hard. I feel this is a
prop problem, does anyone have a solution? I'm thinking of changing to
a 3 blade prop. In the meantime a longer tiller will be a quick fix.
