Is there an ideal number of turns of the ships wheel
(stop to stop) for a typical performance cruising catamaran
? In my instance, if it matters, the design max rudder
angle for my cat is 30 deg.
If there is a convention, how and why would this differ between the various typed of boats. i.e. square rigger ship, americas cup racing
This may be like asking "what is the ideal length of a piece of string?" but it would be interesting to hear opinions about the subject.
thanks in advance to all who wish to comment.
