Default dersRudder design

Hey
i have build some airboats, all with square shaped Rudders,
i have seen on some other ppl´s boats that have a larger shape in the top and more narrow in the bottom.

is this the key to ger the boat to slide rather then tilt in to the turn ?

yer, cool boat, but i wanna get rid of the skipping, and get i to slide more easy insted of tilting,
but it dossent sems like anyone cant help, i think i am on that way to understand the problem,

so far i have tryed to make an oval shaped rudder helped a little, so now i make an even bigger surfis on top of my rudder if thats helps i have planed to make a new front to my boat,
one that flows better with the watherm to se if that helps with skipping problem
