Is external rudder a good idea?
I have my eyes set on my next new-to-me-boat, but as you can see from the picture it has the rudder mounted on the transom, instead of a more tradtional through-hull rudder.
I don't see that on a lot of bots, and I wonder what are the downsides of this?
I like to think that it easier to inspect and less holes in the boat to worry about, but what am I not seeing?
I have attached a picture, I hope, but if that doesn't work here is link to the same picture:
