It seems to me that many of the newer Merlin's are prone to the rudder stalling in certain conditions. Certainly more so than other classes and the older Merlin's I have sailed. I appreciate that any foil will have a point at which it will stall-out ...angle of attack, speed etc. Has anyone else experienced and thought about this problem? Leading on from this has anyone successfully reprofiled the leading edge of the new molded or laminated rudders?
Jon Turner rudders don't stall. Ask Taxi, Ben Hollis, or anyone else who has one. Available as just the blade (fits Winder stock) or with full carbon stock+tiller and unitary mounting. Call Jon on 07712 436745.
Ive often hear people talking about rudders stalling and thought how does tat actually manifest itself Like what happens or doesn't
