    All requisitioned whalecatchers, Flower and Castle class corvettes were fitted with balanced rudders, and I believe the 1935 Basset Class Admiralty trawler had the same stern configuration with a balanced or “free-hanging” rudder. Can anyone confirm this?
    Most trawlers built to Admiralty order were fitted with the traditional trawler rudder, the Lake Class being an exception.
