Re: Is external rudder a good idea?

I know that the Hake Seaward ultra-shoal draft boats have an external rudder like that ... even with wheel steering. But, that is obviously so that it can eliminate draft when desired. Even their 32' and 46' foot models can practically pull up onto a beach with their centerboard up.
