Hey
I have an Albin Vega and are currently working on rigging it for Blue water Crossing.
I stand over an old John Adams Windpilot. It looks verry big and are quite Heavy.
The rudder looks realy good, as it looks like it may be used as an emergency rudder aswell.
The rudder can not move horizontal. Will this be a problem?
Anyone that have any information to give me on this?
Thank you all:)

If you have an outboard rudder, don't waste your time or money looking for any kind of mechanical vane gear. Just build a trim tab unit for a few dimes and you will have a piece of equipment that will out perform AND outlast any commercial vane gear on the market.
Look to the Searunner Construction Manual for the plans, FREE!

Thank you for quik reply. But I do not have an outboard rudder. As my rudder is mounted on the keel.
But I was hoping maybe this one could work as an outboard rudder aswell as self steering?
