I would like to enlarge the rudder on my Whitby 42 for, (hopefully), better control. Can anyone offer suggestions?
Are there drawings available?

Orca's rudder has been enlarged to meet the suggested specs by Ted Brewer.
my suggestion is to make sure the rudder stock is also beefed up,ckeck for corrosion,(some rudder stocks were made from different grade metals which caused corrosion at the joints),also the steering mechanism is in good shape, if you have hydrolic cylinder steering make sure it does not leak when under pressure..otherwise you will enjoy the more control.good luck
