SKF's Fin Stabilizer Steel Cover for SKF's and thirdparty retractable fin stabilizers - reduces water flow
resistance, is deployable in any weather condition and closes the fin box up to 98%.
The SKF Fin Stabilizer Steel Cover
- consists of two hydraulically actuated steel covers and a permanently mounted shield on the crux, which together close the hull opening more than 98% when the fin is housed.
- only opens shortly to allow the fin transition either from the housed to the extended position or vice versa.
- opens to the outside, minimizing installation space within the fin pocket and loss of buoyancy.
- can be retrofitted in most vessels with fin box cover preparation.
