Norm Rhines

Good day Chip :
Where about in Hawaii is your home port.
I am over here in Oahu (Keehi marina) and would be interested in talking to you. There are some things that would help the westsail's rudder but it entails replacing the rudder with a new one. (I have considered having a group build for this item but I am not sure this possible as many are not willing to pay for the cost this entails. But integral to the design would be a trim tab which could be set to counter steer thus reducing the loads on the pins and helmsman. There are also tech items that could be fixed at the same time.
I just came over from the main land and the double reef and head sails work great. I am using a 1975 vintage rudder with mods (still not exactly right but close)

In any case ship me a mail if you would like to get together.
