I went sailing today.

The tiller does not work like a lever. It works on the on the push / pull principles?

The rudders float up and go horizontal while I'm sailing. Is this the way they supposed to be? My friend said, he thought they should lock down.


My forearm is killing from trying to keep those rudders so I can be 45 degree of the wind. Sailing this Hobie Catmandarin shouldn't be this tough?

Just the same it was fun... I'd swear I had her beating at around 30 mph...

Thankyou

Yes they are designed to lock down. Steering should be easy.

Check the FAQ on cams:
