Rudder Blade
Just wondering if anyone can tell me the correct dimensions of an RL 24 rudder blade? Mine has been cut down and I found that in strong winds I basically had no steering.

Thanks in advance.

Is it weather helm you are getting? If your boat is a swing keel, you can reduce the problem substancially by raking the keel aft.

It may also be the rake of your rudder too. See if you rake the tip forward a couple of degrees.

Hi Tim Another sugestion Try changing the rack of you mast. Forward rack will decrease whether helm. Maybe try some chain links so you can experiment with rig if you dont have the ajustment avalable. Good Luck Greg
