Zero relative velocity (ZRV) Skimmers are rope mop devices used in catamaran hull vessels. A series of separate ropes (generally four to six) are arranged between the hulls. They are allowed to hang loosely on the water surface and are rotated aft at a velocity close to the forward speed of the vessel. Velocity of the ropes relative to the oil on the water is close to zero.
