Re: How to find a rudder design?
If it's anything like Canadian rules and regs, Overnight guests are passengers requiring things like watertight bulkheads ,all sorts of fire alarms and gear ,just for starters.even if the boat never leaves a dock. Dept of Transport doesn't hand out the ticket easily Getting legal may be more work than getting the boat to sea. I was licensed for 18 day passengers and 6 overnight so got good at jumping hoops.building the boat was easier.
