We wanted a widebeam but didn't fancy the price tag.
Here's how i did it.
Hi Kev, we are having a wide beam boat built by Lambon Fabrications and Barn Owl Boats (see Carol’s blog WB Still Rockin’). Lesley and Joe (Yarwood) came to see us today and told us about your Rudder and how good it was. Any chance of seeing some drawings of the design? It sounds just what we have been looking for.
Hello CarolIf you do a search for rudder on my blog you will see how I Made it. I won't publish the drawings but I will email them to you. Use the get in touch gadget on my blog so I have your email or leave me your phone number and I'll call you.
Hi Kev, just been doing more research into schilling rudders. I have been trying to calculate the optimum size and shape for my rudder and came across your discussions on boaters forum. There was a link you put on of your boat doing a 360! I was really impressed. It is definitely what I want for our boat and as your boat is a similar size to ours, I think the dimensions of your rudder will suit ours ok. You mentioned you would e-mail the drawings if I sent my contact details, but, just in case you didn’t get them, here they are again: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07909 902543. Thanks Kev, George Palin
