    Hi all,

    Can anyone give us a hint on what toe in angles should we use on a 2 rudder 26ft sailboat?
    Nothing on the owner's manual, unfortunately...

    Thanks in advance.

    SailDesign Old Phart! Stay upwind..

    Basic set-up should point both rudders at the "pivot" point when the steering is straight ahead. In other words, point both rudders at the leading edge of the keel.

    Great, thanks!
    We'll start from there and see how she goes.
