These are functional.

I have delivered two Vic - Maui boats.

The boat I brought back from Maui in 2000 had a rudder failure about 600 miles out. They used a spinnaker pole with a device that looked like a box kite to get in.

The one on the boat I brought back this year appeared to be very functional, but I did not put it to the test. It looked like any transom hung rudder.
