Anti-rolling tanks for steadying ships at sea. The device shown above embodies two water-filled tanks, one at each mast, consisting of large side chambers connected at the bottom by a shallow transverse passageway. The flow of water from side to side of the tanks is so far delayed that there is always an excess of water on that side of the vessel upon which the sea wave is exerting its heeling effect.
