Thanks Faster! By balancing tab, you mean like the part forward of the turning axis??
I will get a good glass shop to do the job and try to get the shape to look like the one on the picture. I think also the overall length is short by a few inches. My biggest problem is really turning the boat when going forward, and also if the wind picks up, even just keeping it say on a reach, makes it hard because the tiller gets very heavy and the response seems very little.

Thanks Faster!!! I will have a good glass shop make me a new rudder to make it like the one in the other picture. My biggest problem actually is that the tiller gets real heavy when the wins pick up a little, and it gets real hard to turn the boat and even to keep it on a reach. Most boats I have been on, turn almost on it's own axis, and mine turns real slow and takes wide turns.

Yes, I did mean the area ahead of the rudder post.. btw, if the rudder is otherwise sound I don't think you need to build a whole new rudder.. I think that section could be added to the existing by a good glass guy.

Those mods will help your weather helm issue, but may well not address the others. Once the boat's cleaned, though, you may notice a surprising improvement in the way she responds...

Re: Jouet 37 rudder modified

Hello, I'am Andreas from Germany and I'am a new Member in this forum. So excuse my bad english.
I am sailing a Jouet 37, building number one since 1978. My father and a friend of him bougth this ship in 1977, I was a boy of 9 years. They sailed wiht this ship at the world champions ship 1978 in Flensburg, Germany (place 27:-), but won the kiel week over all, travemuende week and flensburg week over all sometimes.
Now my father is a pension and his friend died last December.
Since 20 Years I am the boatman and now the ownerr.
I love this Boat. Ist is fas and quite comfotable.

Your Question about the rudder. It is quite normal, that the tiller gets very strong and the beast follows not that way you wont:-)

Our rudder gets broken and we made it new, but a little shorter. About 10 centimeters shorter. And our rudder is balanced a little (see at the picture). The rudder reaches not the end of the skeg.

She was always weather helm, but last year we get a new genua from North sails. Now she is well balanced. Now she is quite easier to sail. Also for women:-) Sorry ladies for that...

If you like to know more about this wonderful ship, just feel free to ask me.
Best regards from germany
Andreas (Andrew)

Do not quote me, but I think you need 10 posts to post a picture. If you can post the actual picture link to the host site, somebody might come along, myself or faster, and make it work.

OR< go to off topic, post a few times in the what song is this thread, or some such thing, or even post a 3, then a 4, There is another thread for doing that in general as I recall too.

Pretty boat Andreas!

Much nicer looking rudder than the OP's. Hopefully he has gotten things straightened out.
