looking at the rudder foils on the fuze, the leading edge is squared off. same thing on the trailing edge. whats the thinking on this type of foil? I see many rudder shapes and foils on o.c. canoes. I would love to see some discussion on rudders. I have surfed most my life,and have seen fins go thru many changes. I cant help but wonder if o.c. rudders will develop the same way?
