Re: Is external rudder a good idea?

I like outboard rudders. If they are well designed they can be as strong as any other rudder. I think Tom gave you a very good overview on outboard rudders based on a lot of experience.


I had one on my own last boat. The boat backed up like a champ.
I like them because they are salty!
