New far so good!

I am liking the new rudder! it has a much lower aspect ratio so it works great in shallow water.  It is 3/8ths inch polyethylene so it is strong.  It is a flat plate so I might have someone make one out of 1 inch polyethylene in a NACA 10 profile someday.  In the mean time it is OK!  Can't wait to try it in the surf!

Here's the kind of happiness that occurs when rudders work like they should:
