It doesn't seem to work that way with my Ingrid. She goes where she damn well pleases, thank you very much.

Yes, those narrow traditional rudders on long keels with the prop in a small aperture are very tough.

Roger,

I can't see your animation. Seems like your links won't work correctly for me.

Re: How to Back Up a Sailboat

Straight:
I tried to address that problem in depth in my GOB article on rudder design, July.August 2010.
On pretty much any full keel, prop in aperture boat rthe turning arm is just way too small.

Re: How to Back Up a Sailboat

I saw the title of the thread and thought it had something to do with having a spare sailboat for, you know, backup.

Try this direct link:

Backing Up a Sailboat

If that doesn't work, maybe your security software is preventing an animated gif from displaying.
