    The rudder is in exactly the same place as per the kit. it has just been lengthened (deepened) to meet the pintle block at the base of the lead keel. the The rudder is 155 mm long.

    My post worked, Thanks RonπŸ‘

    Here are some more photos to prove that the Dragon can sail but not as it is designed by Billing’s.

    The hull was moulded off an old damaged hull, filled and faired. I did nothing for 15 years and a fellow Canterbury J sailor took it and made something of it.

    It’s like a classic version of a DF65 and easy to transport, fits in the car rather than the Canterbury J which it big. Also not effected by weeds!

    Anyway I was happy to see something come of my hard labour’s some years ago into an attractive sailing and display model.

    Here is a Billings Dragon that has been made to sail with Rc and a winch/rudder. Alterations were made to the C of Effort and the sail plan was altered to allow this. There are 24 hulls made. It is in New Zealand.

    This is my first posting. Hope it works.
