WHAT DMR USERS SAY

...This rudder on Northern Defender best ever we installed. The vessel handling totally changed for the best steering ever, Crew is so happy. They do not have to call Tug boat to dock at Alyeska for unloading... Kind Regards,

Dear Mr. Stambaugh: I'm writing to tell you what an improvement your rudder made to our F/V Northern Defender! Years ago, the original "barn door" rudder on here was replaced with a triple-vent rudder system; reportedly an improvement. Recently, we replaced this arrangement with your articulating rudder, and frankly, this thing is like a different boat. Where as before, I had to basically put the rudders hard over and wait (or hope) to turn when towing, we now have to be careful not to turn too fast on the gear. We can literally simply turn any amount we want at any time, even in heavy currents and with a lot of wire out. Around the docks and at slow speed, we're seeing a large improvement in performance as well. Before, we had to intermittently "goose" the pitch in order to steer and now, the boat tracks nicely. Turning around in tight quarters is a breeze: the boat simply spins in place. Frankly, with this tough 2018 summer pollock season, our ability to fish far more effectively has paid off well in fishing results. Thank you very much for this fine improvement. Best regards,

 The installation of Deflector rudders on my 53 foot seiner Challenger have made it handle like a whole new boat. It now turns twice as quick and in half of the space and is much more maneuverable while towing on the net. I have a bow thruster that used to be my best friend and since I installed the rudders I haven’t used it once.
