Re: Is external rudder a good idea?

Great Brent. I comforted to know you and I still disagree on just about everything.

You have to move the rudder. When you do you will need something to connect it to the wheel. With an inboard rudder you will have more options in this area.
Maybe not in Swainland but in the rest of the world it works like that. I suggest you take a lok at any Edson Catalog. There are lots of steering arrangement options in the catalog. I know that you would probably prefer welding something of your own design up but lots and lots of sailors use Edson.
