Re: Seat Placement
Posted by Steve on Dec 19, 2004
I built a C17 a few years ago. I had the same problems paddling in the wind on Lake Erie. I tried a number of things to correct it, i.e. skeg, ballast, paddling technique, etc. My final fix was to retrofit a rudder. It was the best money I spent on the boat. I use it for 3-4 trips and needed it to be very paddle friendly. That is exactly what I got after adding the rudder.
