Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help.
If I leave the helm even for the shortest time, and the boat begins to go off course, whether we are under sail or power there seems to be a viscious pull of the rudder to go further off course. ie: there is no self straightening effect whatsoever.
Yes the rudder is hung at an angle from the transom, so that when turned, a small part of the leading edge of the rudder actually lines up with the wrong side of the keel line, but surely the biggest part of the rudder should be pushed to the centreline by the force of the way of the boat.
We normally carry rather a lot of weather helm which I can't seem to correct, but we want to try and get her to be less tiring to steer.
Any ideas?? Adrian
