Re: Great Auk tracking
In Response To: Great Auk tracking ()

I made a Great Auk for racing in the Blackburn challenge. I stretched it out to 18'. This still would not track well for me, quite squirrely. I added a fixed skeg that was about 18" long and tapered to about 3" deep and placed it about 15" from the stern. It made a huge difference and the thing now runs on rails.
