IMPORTANCE OF RUDDER
The rudder is the most important part of the ship, since it is what determines its direction. When the rudder is damaged, the ship can no longer operate, even if the hull and machinery are in excellent condition.
For this reason the rudder, as the propeller, passes through a separate inspection. The rudder inspection includes inspection for damages, inspection for any deformities, and inspection for cracks on the blades.
Many times during the assembly of the rudder, there is a possibility of welding blade error which results in the appearance of cracks on one side of the blade.
One such case is when the blades of the rudder and the rudder stock are welded to one side of the rudder and the cover plate on the other side cannot be welded properly. By creating cracks to the rudder water may enter to its interior.
