If you can get a profile drawing and cut out the underwater profile on a piece of cardboard you can find the approx CLR/balance point by placing your cutout on a ruler's edge.. Can't recall if you should do this with or without rudder included..
But as mentioned it's only an approximation.
Skenes says to include the rudder - it IS a significant piece of the lateral plane.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
