    Is this Nozzle mounted to the rudder? It doesnโ€™t look to be surrounding the prop as other nozzles do.

    Probably a retro fit. Fixed position propeller with a following rudder. Likely added a ring (nozzle) to the existing rudder or a new rudder with ring.

    Someone is wasting a lot of engine power by not putting nozzle around the rudder. But then who are we, when no doubt that is the way a professional naval architect designed it - or was it someone or something else with less knowledge of what a kort is about? Lookout AI will be taking over our comments soon!!๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Some ships have the kort nozzle behind the propeller like this photo. Doesn't seem to make full advantage of the purpose of the nozzle.
