Re: How to find a rudder design?

Tall Ship, since your goal is having a vessel for sailing and chartering, and your goal does not seem to be restoration of a historic vessel, then have your naval architect design the new rudder in steel. Nice NACA airfoil shape. Semi balanced if necessary. It will be many times more effective than a wood rudder.
