Thank you Arne.
I am not sure. The keel is almost as long as a Folkboat keel. If the boat were mine, I would probably try it with a JR, as it is, but be prepared for some necessary fixes to the rudder, if it turned out necessary:'
- One improvement could be to fit an endplate to the bottom of the rudder.
- Another could be (if the propeller is a fixed 3-blader) to install a feathering propeller, like A Kiwi to get a better waterflow over the rudder under sail
- If the two first fixes are not enough to steer the boat downwind in some following offshore sea, I would be prepared to add a second rudder to the stern.
