Further to earlier comments re removing rudder when motoring, I discovered this week at Ullswater that just lifting the blade up to the horizontal position seems to work ok and saves removing the whole rudder and tiller – I did check it out on land first that the prop cannot foul the blade when lifted up. I also added a sliding eye to the underside of the boom a couple of feet in from the end to attach mainsheet onto. Not a perfect set up but it seems to work ok for occasional use until we can sort out something a bit more permanent.
