Although we have shown you the fins in the past this is the first chance we have had to show them in an uncluttered environment. The rudder is enormous by normal standards and in close proximity to the propeller. This offers numerous benefits:
- Better heavy weather steering.
- Close quarter maneuvering control.
- Enhanced control in reverse.
We have talked about the importance of the prop skeg shape and the flow of water around it to the prop. This water view will give you a feel for the streamlined flow at the back end, and just how little interference there is from the propeller skeg.
While we are here, a detail of the Spurs Line Cutter fitted to the prop shaft.
Finally, one of the stabilizer fins with a handsome boat builder for scale.
