Rudder Modification


Keith Hussong (Guest)

On Yachtworld.com there is a boat listed as a Westsail 33. The profile shows significant rudder modification. Have you seen such rudder modifications. If not, do you think they would be effective in reducing the heavy helm or have any advantage at all?

Keith,

The Westsail 33 is not a Westsail boat, but a copy made in Australia of the Atkins design. They may have modified the rudder to suit their own requirements.
