Hi I'm doing some research in to the technology of the France and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the ships stabilisers. I know that it had two sets but I was wondering if they were a new development or had were standard on most liners? Also we're they really needed? Any help would be great. Thanks

Stabilizers have been around for at least half a century now. I suppose whether or not they're needed would depend on your point of view. If you happen to be a seaman, you might not mind a bit of rock and roll, however, most people are not seamen. The stabilizers may well make the difference between a comfortable ride and losing your lunch.
