Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
On a side note, more two Catalina with rudder problems: one lost it and the other loss steering. Obviously Catalinas, or at least some vintage, have a problem with rudders. That does not mean that Catalinas cannot sail safely but that they have to do a lot more rudder maintenance than other boats. I would liked very much to know if those two Catalina had their rudder system conveniently checked before doing this passage and when was the systems completed dismounted for a thoroughly inspection.
Hum, It seems strange however it can be a coincidence.... and I have messed up, after all it is the Hunters that have known problems with the rudders, not Catalina, or at least till now
