Re: Mistral 16 Rudder ?

Hi Bo,
Thanks for the Wayfarer picture. Very instructive. There are major differences with our system;
1) our traveler is at the feet of the helmsman, it is not above the tiller like shown on the picture.
2) it is just a metal clip (sorry for the metal "sheet) that was supposed to hold the blade (this is a very standard system: all the lasers and another mistral 16 at our joint use it). This clip lets the pintle (pin) coming in the gudgeon (hole) and is supposed to prevent the rudder from sliding back.
