MARINER VERSION JOINS THE SCHILLING RUDDER RANGE

The latest version of the Schilling high-lift rudder is a semi- spade or Mariner version of the successful Monovec rudder. Large- scale free-sailing model tests have been carried out with a Schilling Mariner rudder fitted to 135,000m3 and 1000,000dwt tankers. The tests demonstrated that both overshoot angles and turning circle qualities are significantly improved when the Schilling Mariner rudder is compared with a conventional Mariner type rudder.
