Yacht rudders

Also on file is the rudder shape for an Irwin 54 we supplied, then there is the Holiday 23, a Dix 43 and a few more from the Dix Deign Didi range.

The pictures are for the Irwin 54 yacht.


When the yacht arrived in Hout Bay the lower heel fitting had broken, the shaft then bent and the local NSRI had to go and supply a tow.



We re designed the rudder at the heel fitting end so that it could be swung over to one side and the rudder removed for later inspection.

The boat was an entrant in that years ARC around the World rally, the last we heard it was off again and was by then in the South Pacific again.
