A very interesting rudder stock which is what I have been thinking of for the day I build my Trimaran. Maneuvering a shoal draft vessel needs this kind of device when maneuvering in dirty water or areas with coral heads and reefs, such as in the islands; and where charting is poor or suspect. Take a look.....
The new Sea Sure Strike Release catamaran rudder stock is the result of a back-to-basics, fundamental design review carried out by leading sailors and engineers. The key design criteria were that the new stock should be: Lighter, Stronger, Stiffer, work better and be more reliable than any existing catamaran stocks on the market.
The new stock meets all of these criteria whilst looking fantastic.
- Dual action strike release with no moving parts
- Off centre pivots, calculated using Ackerman theory
- Lightweight triple formed Aluminium body for strength and stiffness
- Latest computer modelling techniques used throughout design process
