Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat
Jeff.. any reason not to carve away the 'deadwood/skeg' ahead of the rudder up to the waterline - ie follow the canoe body? Seems it might improve turning/tacking manoeuvrability a bit...what's left should still be a good base for gudgeons/pintles and result in a more effective rudder.
