Rudder blade

Created: Friday, 20 February 2015

We already have the rudder blade for our yacht. It is almost ready. The only things left are welding, finishing and painting. And also we have to fill it with oil. Our rudder blade assembled directly on the rudder head shaft, which is made of stainless steel. Inside the hull is everything ready for rudder installation. 

We are going to operate this big thing with the hydraulics from two posts (right and left board). We are also planning to insert into the hydraulic pump for the autopilot. The autopilot is the sort of thing that will keep a given course orienting by the compass. There are many systems, but to be honest, we have not chosen one yet. The question of the navigation equipment is a completely separate issue. 

Of course we are going to have the emergency tiller too.
