Re: Mounting Rudders

Yeah, I worred about the stress on the stern from the larger rudder on the MC 16.5, which be pretty high when sailing. The extra tape is a nice idea. What I tried is to widen the stern with a long, V-shaped insert, like the CH 14 transom. This made for a wider endpour. I also put some heavier glass tape inside. I'll see if it works when we go back up north next week. If not, drop the sail and paddle!
