Sailing Boat Design
Rudders and Centreboards
SYAS Performance has been designing and building high performance foils for racing sailboats since 2001. We understand that customising the foil design to a boat and crew is critical. It is for this reason we custom design foils and sections to suit each project.
Our foil designs are now the foils of choice in the 12ft skiffs and Starling class in New Zealand. These foils are made by C-Tech and Little Bus Yachting in New Zealand from CNC machined moulds.
Rudder Box Attachments
Here is a drawing of a generic rudder box bush arrangement. This design has come about after many years of trial and error!
The first drawing shows arrangement for boats between 6 and 12m.
The second shows a typical dinghy/skiff arrangement.
Please note that there are no dimensions or laminates, as they will vary from boat to boat. These drawings just show typical arrangements that will work if the right amount of material is used. If you need a specific detail for your boat please contact me.
