    This is simple.

    To control the toe in/out of the drive units.

    Back in the early 80's we did not have a mechanical tie bar system that worked perfectly on the catamaran applications like we do today.

    In order to keep the drives parallel through the trim adjustments on a cat application it was deemed easier to fix the drives vertically and use a rudder for steering.

    They use a rudder so their toupee's don't fall off.
