R36 RUDDER

DOES SIZE MATTER?
Posted: 14 Nov 2018 - By: Mark Goodin

I'm currently laid up in Gosport boat yard along with another rival 36 and have noticed a big difference in the size of our rudders. My Rival was built in 1992 and my neighbour in 1995 and his rudder is approx 30% larger than mine (does size matter?) Since his boat is a later model I'm assuming the the change was an improvement?

What I'd like to know is, how much difference does it make and is it worth modifying my rudder? Will it improve manoeuvrebility in marina's especially in reverse?

Hope someone can help me.

Mark
