Shark 24 Rudder Build
This is a project I did for our Shark 24 sailboat we use and race often. This design is a good comprimise of balance, lift and control in all sailing conditions. The method we used to profile the wood is a very reliable traditional process it requires a perfectly square laminated piece of wood shaped to a NACA 0012 foil shape. The key here is to take your time to fair all surfaces, leave lots of time for things to dry and to be diligent in fiber-glassing ensuring the entire thing is sealed.
