Re: Sailboat Rudder (ROM) Range of Motion

It depends on the boat my J24 is very happy turning around with in its own length in tight places with the rudder pretty close to 80 degrees

On my Cal 29 the rudder will hit the hull section it is faired into and requires stops so it will NOT be damaged

When doing actual sailing there both fastest when the sails are balanced in a way that the rudder is as close to ZERO movement as possible

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
