Re: rudder function

Not enough information to say but I'd stick with the rudder. Your description is very close to the Patuxent 17 I made 12yrs ago. Bow buried to the coaming,etc. I installed a small rudder made out of a necky flip down skeg. Very minimal, it was a bit shallow but made a big difference. Moving your weight back on a hull that is well rockered my solve some of the weathercocking attributues but that really won't address excessive bow burying or other attributes that aren't desirable.
