Catalina 27 rudder

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I am posting in the right spot, but here goes. I purchased a high aspect rudder from Booth a couple of weeks ago and finally managed to get it bottom painted and installed. Out of all the changes I have made to my boat this has got to be the biggest change. It is a lot more comfortable under sail and has low speed maneuverability now. As many other people have mentioned it now has steering in reverse! All in all I am very pleased and would highly recommend this product. Also it was a good thing that I did change the rudder. The bolt that goes through the rudder and tiller head was all but rotted out. Someone had replaced it at one time with a mild steel bolt and nut. Scary!
Anyhow, just thought I would give credit where credit is due.
Happy Sailing
Aaron

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
