Lifting The Rudder Blade
The rudder on my boat is held in the down position by a plastic shear pin installed by the previous owner. I'd like to return the rudder to the kick-up mode. How does one hold the rudder blade in the up and down positions in the absence of the rudder lifting kit available from Flying Scot? Does installing the rudder lift kit add any drag (i.e., does any part of the rudder lift kit extend below the water line)?
