Rudder mod

The current owner of the boat we're buying has welded a bit more steel on the leading edge of the rudder.

It's a bit difficult to make out, but all you can see in his photo is the portion in front of the rudder post.

For comparison here's the rudder as it was:

I hope it works OK!

Surveyor's report expected on Easter Tuesday.

Halfie, I'll be interested to know if you find the rudder mod successful as I think Sundowner has yet to find a solution to her heavy steering.

I'll try to remember to post about it when we finally get the boat.
