Not only did Parsons design the first effective steam turbine, he designed a ship to prove it! Turbinia dashed through the lines of warships at Spithead Review and the picket boats couldn't stop her or catch her. Parsons not only had to sol;ve technical problems to produce a practical working steam turbine but high speed turbines produced cavitation at the propellers and he had to solve that problem to get the power of the turbine converted to efficient propulsion. Turbinia had multiple propellers per shaft butlarger diameter propellers of modified shape,simplified turbine blade design and geared shafts soon followed.
