Replying to:rudder dimensions for RL 24
I have a 1982 US built RL 24 that has had some modifications made to it by previous owner(s). One of the modifications made was to change the rudder and tiller which need replacing. I have several questions. Are there any available drawings or written dimensions for the original rudder? I have looked at the drawing for the RL 28 and 1.7 meters seems a bit long to me (but I'm not a naval architect either). Are there other boats that would have a comparable rudder? A member of my yacht club suggested using a stock rudder for a J-24. If there are other stock models that will work is there a formula I can use to determine if a rudder will work effectively?
