Harbour tugs are fascinating, adventurous and complex. A tugboat Captain must know the theory surrounding these vessels and even more, must have the ability to shape it with his own experience in the environment in which he works. Considering the numerous variables he must adapt everything to the style of manoeuvre of the pilot on duty. Not everyone can stand out in this work. The Port Tug Course deals with important topics; 'we propose the theory necessary for practice'.

In this Ship Steering Gear Fundamentals course, we will explore how hydraulics are used to steer large seagoing vessels. We will start by looking at the evolution of ship steering mechanisms, from the days of sailors at the helm of wooden ships, to the fully-automated systems we use today. We will then review the major parts of modern ship steering gears, including rams, cylinders, tillers, and rudder angle indicators. We will learn how pumps, motors, directional control valves and relief valves work together to manoeuvre a vessel with precision, even across long distances.

When facing a manoeuvring test, it is not uncommon that the first topic you come across is precisely the evolutionary effects of the propellers. To better understand this aspect, it is necessary to briefly mention the different characteristics between fix-pitch and variable-pitch propellers and then - with some examples - fix this information with the reasoning developed to haul a ship to the quay. But that's not enough, because there are many other aspects to consider.

A good pilot must know that naval manoeuvring is not only affected by wind and sea. The invisible forces acting below the waterline are often much more powerful. Banks effects, tidal currents, ship interactions, etc. A pilot needs to consider this, evaluate and then adapt it to suit the current situation; ensuring a successful outcome.
