The rudder rake and cam-locking clearance are related dimensions that that depend of the hole pattern in the rudder. I'm betting something's amiss with your hole pattern. Do you know the history of this boat? People mix/match parts all the time, and you may have ended up with a rudder drilled for a different model boat and/or casting. Note that the recommended pattern is even different for boats of the same type, depending on whether or not the castings are adjustable. Besides all that, I believe most rudders are drilled free hand (and maybe not even by the dealer), so it would seem pretty easy to make a small mistake in the hole location that translates to a bigger rake/locking problem.
I'll pass along info on the Combeaux, but if the OSYC holds their Shearwater Regatta as scheduled, some of us will likely go there instead. (http://www.osyc.com/index.php?module=Co ... iew&pid=22
) I enjoyed all of my past trips to SYC immensely, but OSYC is like a home away from home, and I support them every chance I get after all they've been through with Katrina, the oil spill, etc.
Our cat club doesn't host events, but some of us willl be doing Jackson Yacht Club's Hospitality Regatta (http://www.jacksonyachtclub.com/club/sc ... rp=0&NS=RR
) the weekend of October 9 & 10. If some of y'all want to come, you're welcome to use our beach to launch, store, etc. for the weekend!
