Of course the mast CAN be (and is) used for yaw stability, especially if moved further aft, indeed.revhed wrote:Yaw stability?Peter_Frank wrote: The mast does not have a function besides structural support
Similar to a boat rudder when inputing body twist for yaw change?
When going fast and having the strut at 45° do you not think it is helping hold the T bar in the water as well as acting like a fin to stop downwind sliding similar to a race board fin?
Even though it has a symmetrical profile is there always neutral water force being generated?
I submit that the strut does a lot more than only offer structral support.
