Many of the NZ Farr's use a rudder gantry to reduce steering sensitivity and to allow the rudder /tiller to be further back, enabling an aftsheeting bridle and to swing the extension forward during tacking. I want to try this along with boom sheeting to keep the cockpit completely clear.
So today I had a go at building an MDF jig to support the gantry pieces whilst glueing. I also began cutting some tube sections that I acquired with the rig.
Will any of this make a real difference in performance.....I doubt it, will it be strong enough, who knows, but it's fun to try these things
