Re: Is external rudder a good idea?
I like transom mounted rudders - they are simple, and when properly mounted - very reliable. The only downside tends to be weather helm when sailing to weather, but if the tiller is long enough that is not a big problem.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
