Bill,
I am not familiar with the Prairie 32, so I cannot advise you on her. A tapered trailing edge to the rudder will improve performance. A flat leading edge does cause disturbance. Rounding the leading edge would help. Even more help can be obtained by widening the aft end of the hull, and closing the gap between the hull and rudder. Check with Dave King regarding the method he used to do this on his Westsail 32.
