Re: Spade rudders vs blue water passage making

"Tank tests have shown that a vertical or slightly raked foreward rudder is more efficient, and less likely to stall, than one raked aft. "

Did they really write "foreward"? Better check your references. I think the word is "forward".

Present the data and make it current. CURRENT. Back up your words with reality. I know that is a challenge for you.

Oh Brent, there you go again making things up again.
Open those eyes. Look around. It won't hurt. You are determined to be blind.

You had to build a Pipe Dream before you figured out the rudder was in the wrong place.
I was a kid when I saw that design and I knew it was an antique. Of course the rudder was in the wrong place. Thank goodness I did not have to build the boat to figure that out.
