Prindle Cat Rudder release problems

A couple of months ago, I purchased a Prindle 16 (sail #834). I was having problems with the rudders releasing while I was sailing.

I have since relaced all rudder hardware. My rudders don''t release as often, but they still are releasing.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Prindle Cat Rudder release problems

I have an old Prindle 18. Mine has an adjustment for the depth of engagment of the latch pin attached to the rudder before it comes down into the housing. This may be too loose. The springs you replaced, so I doubt if this is the reason. Try contacting
Good luck.
