Great job on these - always nice to see a sailboat bright back to life. I enjoy my hobie holder 12 (owned by Coleman at the time of build) on a local lake in CT in original condition. Oddly enough there's another one on our small lake as well. Weather helm in a stiff wind is common for me but I also have squirrelly wind which means I'm hopping off and on the rail as it varies. I don't have a main sheet clete so happy I don't have a jib to manage. Still I think adding a job would make it even jumpier except maybe on a broad reach. Looks like you've secured your rudder and daggerboard but I hear about many who lose those in a capsize and that's the end of the boat value... At least for mere mortals who lack your skills in fabrication. Enjoy them!
