    What gives!?!?

    Yeah. That's what I was afraid you were going to say..... just tighten the piss out of the pivot bolt. That totally removes to functionality of the rudder a) puts undue stress on the gudgeons and, b) if you tighten it so it says down, you'll never be able to beach it. I don't know if you have...

    What gives!?!?

    Yep!! I think we've hit the nail on the head. Who cares how my boat or your boat are rigged.... as long as they don't exceed the set purchase ratios or "turns". Now, how is your rudder held down with friction? Mine lifts right up if it's not rigged down tightly.

    I've been basically given a 1980 model Laser standard. She's been sitting on her side under my buddies back deck for what he claims to be 8+ years. Other than major cleaning and some parts and pieces from Intensity, she's really exceeded my expectations. The hull seems firm and the deck...
