Rudder taper direction
I live on the west coast and recently purchased my Flying Scot. I am planning on installing the rudder lift kit soon. There is only one other FS in our club and I noticed that on my boat the fore edge of the rudder is tapered and the aft edge is square. On the FS in the space next to me to me it is the opposite, the fore is square and the aft is tapered. Which way should it be?
Also, as the rudder is lowered there is some strong resistance the farther it is lowered. Should the rudder be waxed? I cleaned it and it helped some but am wondering if this is typical, and I am not sure of the power of the lift kit.
