We are thinking of constructing a T foil rudder onto Loki for winter experimentation. It may not work with the Big Issue to any significant degree, so I don't want to spend a fortune on it. However there have now been a fair number of retro fits onto non-specific T foil boats so the most effective system must be getting established. The back end is v strong already with a full length box bracing the transom. Ideally I want to have a single long pin with a slot in the top of the rudder stock type arrangement and a suitable adjusting system. Would anyone like to share their knowlege on this? I also thought of getting hold of a second hand T foil rudder from another development class like the I14 as they often advertise them and cutting it down to size. Any obvious pitfalls with this idea?
