Just recently obtained a Dumas Atlas Van Lines hydro 40 size.Length is 36".Was wonering which side of the transom to put the rudder on.How far from center of prop should it be offset if at all.The turn fin is on the right.Thanks for the help.Also,haw far should the rudder extend down into the water past the prop.Mark

Put it on the left side of the transom, looking from rear to front. Mount rudder so when the servo is pulling the boat will turn right.
