With a Lever Long Enough...
“Large ocean liners, tankers, aircraft carriers, and other massive vessels have equally
massive rudders. However, even the sturdiest rudder axle would snap under thepressures of battling the inertia and water pressure resisting its attempt to change thedirection of one of these behemoths. That is why, on the trailing edge of these giantrudders, there is a thin strip of steel called a trim tab. A relatively small motor turns the trimtab, which can withstand the relatively small water pressure against it. That pressure istranslated to the massive rudder, which responds by turning in the opposite direction, and
redirecting the entire ship.”
--David Galiel, A Lever Long Enough
