"I'm sorry but my english is not very good and I don't undestand well your idea. You can make a rudder to be of a pivoting type, a lifting type or a combination of both. I think you want the last option, which is the most complicated. Ian…"

"hi Andres, thanks for the reply. I had thought of hinging in the same way, but it would add another metre or more making them exposed in high winds when dried out and damage in shallow marinas. My thoughts are to construct the blades the same shape…"

lifting rudders

Hi I am having to replace my rudders due to beaching damage. I would like to make them from composite materials to keep them light and also be able to lift them as my boat is on a drying mooring. So my question is has anyone designed a system they are willing to share, so I don't have to reinvent the wheel. Any ideas or comments please.RegardsDavidSee More

"Update. I now know the reason for my pintals breaking. The stern is slightly heavier than the bows. On springs the bows swing before the rudders are out of the sand, as the steering is hydraulic and hold fast the only thing that will give is the…"

Hi David,

Dave Hender has been trying to contact you since he heard that BT had a new owner, he's living in NZ, his email: <bigtiddles@pocketmail.com.au>; or he and Jane are on Facebook, if you go to my Multihull Surveys Facebook page, you'll see a post from him. How's the refit coming? Will you be sailing the coming summer? It would be interesting to see the boat again.

Hi Steve,
It's great to hear back so quick from you. The renovations are going well although the winter and work pressure has stopped me temporarily. We had some miss fortune this last August. Tracey and I were due to sail the east coast as the tail end of the hurricane came through. The tidal surge ripped off the rudder pintals and has damaged both rudders. I am at present trying to redesign them so that they lift clear of the sand. I would be delighted for you to come and see her, anytime. Well I have to go i will email you again later today. If you want to contact me me number js 07791772357 its always on. Kind regards David
