Norvane Emergency Rudder System
03Norvane Emergency Rudder System
Building and testing an emergency rudder for a Norvane windvane on the 28-foot Pearson Triton sailboat, Atom. The rudder sleeve size is double the area (10" x 34") of the original Norvane servo rudder, which is 7" x 24". To balance the rudder I kept 20% of surface area forward of the axis.
