Is anyone using a lifting blade design? Or "kick up" as the Americans call it.
We at Alnmouth, Northumberland always launch off the beach and are having a fair bit of damage to the rudder hanging from surf and beach. I am interested in having the blade pivoted so that it comes right out of the water without dismounting the rudder stock from the stern post
As far as I can see there is nothing in the rules to prevent this design - or is there?
