I like it, but how do you turn it?
The Steersman all the way aft will have to use his paddle as a rudder. Also adjusting what side the paddlers paddle on will effect turning moment.
Sorry, Doug, my sarcasms doesnt show in the text. I really do like it, with that plumb stem Im assuming it has very little rocker and will track like an arrow. Its an open water boat and tight turning wont be needed.
I should of got that but it was late-- you are right of course, it will track like an arrow. My thoght was to design for straight line speed.
