AbstractThis paper describes the results of a study to investigate the effect of including a centerline fin, in combination with a steerable ducted propeller, on the manoeuvrability of a Great Lakes Bulk Carrier. The study consisted of interpreting the data obtained from manoeuvring experiments on a scale model carried out at IMD as well as similar full scale trials carried out by CSE Marine Services Inc. of St. Catherines, Ontario, on two sister ships of the same design as the model.
