Two prototype Rudder Roll Stabilization systems were built and installed on U.S. Coast Guard WHEC cutter during 1978 and 1979. This report documents the design, fabrication, and installation of these systems and provides guidance on their use and repair. Sufficient detail is provided to enable the reader to duplicate and install a similar system on a similar vessel however, the design considerations which optimize the system for a specific vessel class and treated only briefly. A subsequent David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center report which addresses these design considerations and provides trial documentation of the system effectiveness is currently in preparation. Author
