Dotan`s rudder benefits
Dotan's conceptually brilliant rudder mechanism enables you to set the blade with a simple flick of the wrist. This action takes less than a second.
Say goodbye once and for all to ropes, elastic bands, fly-nut, screw-in rudder systems and multi-step setting and lifting actions.
Rudder Box: Constructed of Non-Corrosive
Incomparably strong and matchlessly durable, using non-corrosive, composite materials which make the Dotan rudder box more steadier against dynamic loadings than aluminum boxes.
The rudder blade is lightweight and yet durable thanks to the integrated spar and special know-how of high pressure technology with thermal shock.
The Dotan rudder blade's profile is designed on the basis of the NACA 0009 hydrodynamic profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics). The Dotan rudder blade's shape minimizes wave and inductive resistance.
The design makes it easy to adapt the rudder box to a variety of sailing boats and catamarans. The rudder box provides the ability to adjust the distance between the gudgeons.
When hitting underwater obstacles such as rocks, sandbanks, jellyfish, etc., the blade automatically kicks up.
The rudder box for Optimists has a 10-year limited warranty.
