Default RE: rudder systems

it would help to know what kind of boat we ar looking at since boats respond differently to rudder configuration depending on the hull type

sorry about that it is gonig on a 36 inch deep vee boat, i was kinda liking the dual set up. idea , being able to turn left or right at the same degree sounds good , its not gonig to be a race boat but it does have a 7.5cc k&b motor in it. was not sure, just needing some help thanks clay

For what it's worth - No one who runs 7.5 deep vees in competitive events runs dual rudders. There may be a reason for that since racing vees basically only make right hand turns. I've run lots of vees and I've never had any reason to consider dual rudders. I'm not saying dual rudders aren't worth the investement. I just have never seen the reason for two rudders when one does the job.

I like the looks of the double rudder if your not going to race it. Or find a setup with the rudder directlt centered behind the prop. I have a boat with rudder offset to side and it will turn harder one way than the other. I would try to find a one rudder setup for less weight less drag. Dave
