Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

They would make a great offshore boat. One can eliminate the weather helm problem and drastically simplify self steering and inside steering, by taking the keel hung rudder off and replacing it with a transom hung rudder on a skeg. The skeg could become a keel cooler for the engine. I'd fair the trailing edge of the keel for that.
