{:-{hi I'm going to bring up a subject that's been on here before about three props what prop goes in the middle RH-LH


This pic clarifies the direction of centre prop, at least on this tug, it is L/H same as port prop, but I am not sure it makes any difference!

hi Brian what web site did you get pic from

www.pousseurs.fr/    How's your French?  Mainly French Pushers, but German and Dutch too.  A good pic of Medart out of the water, gives good view of hull shape, click on links at left side .

That's interesting Brian , on the photo of the pusher DECIDE out of the water shown from the stern , it clearly shows the twin kort's and the rudders , but it may be my eyes the korts look like they are steerable as well .
I have not seen this combination before , is it common on pusher tugs.

I don't think the Korts are steerable, the rudder shaft appears to go up through the hull, this would not allow the Kort to swivel.  The bottom forward edge of the rudder appears to be attached to the bottom of the Kort just for support.

It looks to me like straight shafts. I think what you see is the shaft supports going up to the hull. Here's what a typical tunnel stern with korts look like in the U.S.

Yep your right   :-)) the port kort looks like it is on an angle .
It's either my eyes or an optical illusion  %% .
