RUD26 rudder blade examples:
The above example shows a typical RUD26 installation in a tiller steered composite boat. The 6D061 bearing has a GRP tube which makes installation very simple, strong and durable. The rudder stock is in aluminium 6082 (stainless steel is possible at a surcharge). By defining the distance H =  "top of deck to bottom of hull" the system can easily be defined. It's advisable to specify H with a bit over length (10-25 mm) so the bearing has a bit over length above deck. Please click on the PDF symbol to open the PDF version of this drawing.

The above example shows a typical RUD26 installation in a wheel steered composite boat. The 61053 bearing has a GRP tube which makes installation very simple, strong and durable. The rudder stock is in aluminium 6082 (stainless steel is possible at a surcharge). Please note the top bearing type "multi" which allows a flat mounting on the cockpit floor. The emergency tiller fits in the hole in the top of the rudder stock. Please click on the PDF symbol to open the PDF version of this drawing.

The RUD26 is very often used as catamaran rudder. It's nicely thin and has a good width for catamaran use. The above example has a restricted depth and by changing the mold with an insert, the blade can be made to suit each depth.  Please click on the PDF symbol to open the PDF version of this drawing.

The above example shows a RUD26 used on a catamaran with a modification to the top of the rudder blade to accommodate the hull angle. As long as this is a straight line, it's a simple change to the mold which can be carried out at a small surcharge.  Please click on the PDF symbol to open the PDF version of this drawing.
