THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION FOR COMFORTABLE MANOEUVRING AND IMPROVING OF THE COURSE STABILITY AT LOW SPEED
During manoeuvring in harbours or other difficult to reach positions, the speed of the boat need to be reduced. Due to loosing the propulsive power of the propellor at low speed the steering effect will get lost. For the majority of the boats it's without switching on the propellor impossible to steer towards the desired direction.
The disadvantage side-effect of Nswitching on the propellor during manoeuvring is the increase of the speed.
By using the Course-keeper it's possible without making use of the propellor, but by using the gliding of the boat and the rudder effect of the Course-keeper to manoeuvre to the exact desired location without picking up speed.
The rudder effect of the Course-keeper is also providing extreme support during backwards manoeuvring and makes it very easy without high effort to park the boat with the heck towards a quay or pier.
Slow speed is for a majority of the boats problematic since the hull is designed to be optimised for high speed.
Due to environmental reasons we are forced on a lot of places to reduce the speed of the boat which has a negative effect on the course stability. This is causing drifting of the boat and continues corrections of the course is needed.
The Course-Keeper stabilises the course of the boat and the rudder functionality avoids continues correction.
Specifically to support the course stability in even a beter way, we developed the Twin-blade Course-Keeper.
The double mounted blades are making use of the water stream between the blades to increase the course stability even more with the self-corrective force of this water stream.
