hi! i've got a plan from Bjorn Thomasson's sea racer and i see that the rudder's longitudinal location is not the same in all the ones i've seen built. the black one with a silver strip it's got it nearer to the cockpit than the one in the plans.. how does the boat react to it?
why the tipical sea kayaks have got it on the stern and the surfskis have it more centered?
what should i be looking for if i want my kayak for short trips and little playing in the surf?
thanks a lot
