Smile helms24

i iam purhasing a helms 24 in the upper peninsula mich, she is in perfect shape and with my limited boat exsperance, grew up sailing a 33 seabird yawl with my father on lake mich. i do know how to sail, the basics and by know meens clame to be a exspert. iam interested in any one who has sailed one on the great lakes, coastal wise. by looking at the rigging i dont think she could handle heavey winds, but i may be wrong. i would like to know if there is any information on how i could rig her so be more comfertable about her should i get caught in weather. i relize that a close watch on conditions should be priority but it has bean my exsperance the lakes can change literly in a matter of minutes. i know eather way i will be very happy with her. its just by pure luck i ran into this boat and i am reading these posts daily. shoul any one have any information i would greatly appriciate it. i also read a post from a man that was in nead of a helms24 decal copy i have one on disk it came with the boat you can contact me . hapy sailing

Hello, I just bought a Helms 24 for an amazing price. I have one problem, it did not come with a rudder. I have the ability to CAD one but I have no understanding of the dimensions that I would need. If anyone out there has any information that might help me in the rudder design I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if there is anyone that has an old manual, or guide that I could have that would be great too. I am seeking all the info that I can find. Thanks.
