Ralph Ainslie with his as-yet-unglassed rudder, showing the profile from head-on and (inset) the leading and trailing edge shapes.

"According to a marine engineer friend of mine, the sharper the leading edge, the less pressure is created to make the rudder want to oversteer. We checked mine and I am right on the edge. If anyone is going to use my design I would suggest moving the shaft ahead about 2". This would solve the problem."
