Seriously, somebody needs to build this baby.. wish it were me. Curious as to how the keel support (when extended) will be engineered...
This looks like the kind of rudder which could give a huge improvement in downwind control on a Catalina or a Vega, which have an even better transom angle for this type of rudder. A skeg would make it far tougher. It would also greatly simplify self steering, autohelm steering and inside steering.
