    Older well known IOR Boats

    I had found some pixs from Antigua RW 1986 of the Jack Knife crew preparing to do Lay Day battle. Was going to send copies to Dr. Greenberg but found he had passed away last year. Very nice gentleman. Will post once I scan them. - Stumbling

    Pointing ability of duck punts and similar craft

    Matt’s micro cruisers still use a rudder. If I remember correctly, the boat is configured to have some weather helm, allowing the big rudder to provide part of the lift for pointing, as well as the chine runners and shape of the hull. - Stumbling

    Planing Back in the Day

    It looks like he had salvaged an etheric rudder from a crashed vessel and modified it to behave as a centerboard, providing the “bite” necessary for sails to work. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Etheric_rudder Unfortunately , the device was not able to be replicated, as 1920s technology could not create a similarity sized device or its power source. - Stumbling
