Re: SC 17 Asymmetric Weather / Lee Helm

So time to update this. I was able to borrow a different rudder stock from another SC sailor but the exact vintage of that one was unknown. He hadn't sailed on it but it was in good condition. Between my rudders and his I rotated it through in 2 different configurations but unfortunately it didn't a...
