Actually, now that you mention it, the very first Bill Lapworth design (the Lapworth 32) had the rudder on the back of a keel that looks very much like what became the Lapworth signature keel. So maybe the spade rudder is the modification. My friend has talked about replacing the keel hung rudder with a later spade but thought better of it. "42 Street" is Lapworth 32 hull #1 and is in bristol condition.
