The traditional 520mm rudder wheel is made of mahogany with six ankles, a bucket and a brass rim, painted with transparent glossy polyurethane varnishes that give it resistance. This marine steering wheel provides excellent maneuverability to the boat from the bridge, which also perfectly combines with the style of a traditional boat, which will give it more attractive and elegant. Its traditional shape and design give it a much more comfortable handling and an excellent image.
Characteristics of Traditional Rudder Wheel 520 mm
- The traditional design of this wheel includes the use of materials that help to withstand the sun and humidity, so the whole image of the sailboat or boat will maintain its profile and comfort.
- It is easy to maintain.
- Deformations that can be caused by use and due to its own weight do not cause rudder blockage at any time.
- To withstand dynamic efforts during navigation and maneuvers, it must be installed on a surface with high resistance.
- Vertical and horizontal load supports are adequate and with little friction.
- Support and support clearances are adequate to ensure abnormal wear.
- The correct operation of the rudder will depend on the total surface of the paddle, the arrangement with respect to the propellers of the boat, the number of rudders and the shape of the rudder.
- It has sufficient strength to withstand dynamic efforts during navigation and maneuvers.
Traditional Rudder Wheel Function 520 mm
The main function of the Traditional Rudder Wheel 520 mm is to provide maneuverability to the boat, as well as the contribution to the most essential and fundamental situations for the maneuverability of the boat, and can range from basic maneuvers of docking or undocking, maneuvers of approach, maneuvers in restricted waters, among others.
Contrary to what happens with the rod, the movements of the wheel are paced with the direction adopted by the ship. If the wheel is turned to the right, the boat heads to the right (starboard), and if the wheel is turned to the left, the boat heads to the left (port side). Of course these mentioned actions arise from the combination of rudder as the object that fixes the steering and the propeller as the propelling object.
