    If i look at the picture of the broken rudder, it seems to be made of foam sandwich. If this is right, not surprising it broke.
    I have noticed that the efforts on the steering system are enormous as sonn as your speed exceed 12 knots. This, due to their large area. We broke a tiller bar which seemed strong just because of a knot in the wood.
    The original design handle the stress well otherwise.

    Yes Jacques I think it is sandwich but I guess that once the top fixing became detached the failure was inevitable. I’ll bear your comments in mind when I get to building the steering components! Cheers
