Try this direct link:

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

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.
