But in the conversation he merntioned he had bought a used Catalina 22 as his first sailboat and his boat had the "Safety Rudder" on it.. I'm thinking its probably the swing up rudder that many had, But in his conversation It came up a couple more times.. So I asked.. What "Safety Rudder" are you speaking of..
So he went on to tell me that the rudder on his boat was specially designed by Catalina with a designed length to come out of the water allowing the boat to "Round-Up" befor the boat would turn over..
And that rounding-up was a safety feture built into the Catalina 22..
I just left it at that......
Are you telling me that the 'Safety Rudder' is not a designed safety feature.... Damn
