Dumas Rudder

G’day breakwater,

This is getting well past my knowledge of USA designs. I have contacted Leigh to help with your question and Leigh has advised the rudder is the same on both his Dumas.

The attached picture should give a clearer view and may help.

Many Australian skippers are replacing their rudders with the “Barn Door” style as, in their opinion, it provides better control and turning ability. (Second photo) Personal choice .

Hope the info has helped.
