    Hello! amit : Take the ship out to open sea

    Operate the ship at service speed

    Set the Steering Gear mode to “non follow up” (as an alternative one can stop the power packs after setting the rudder at a given angle)

    Set the rudder angle to 20 ۫ port. Read and note the pressure.

    If it seems that the rudder creeps at an unacceptable rate, measure how many seconds it takes for the rudder to creep from 20 ۫ to 15 ۫

    Set the rudder angle to 20 ۫ starboard

    Repeat point 5
