'Your boat sails like a truck'

I let a more experienced sailor, sail my boat and he said it fell very heavy its 18’ Cortez. It still has the original rudder. It’s about 4’ long 1’ wide and 1.5” thick wood. Would changing it to a fiberboard or fiberglass rudder help? I have all ready made a new tiller handle for it that is 2’ longer then original, but have installed it yet. What should I do?
