is not a better way to enhance your nautical marine decor than with a
rugged wooden ship steering wheel inside or outside (this teak ships
wheel can weather the elements).
The wheel of a ship is the modern method of adjusting the angle of the rudder, in turn changing the direction of the boat or ship. It is also called the helm, together with the rest of the steering mechanism. Helmsmen on older ships used a tiller (a long stick) fixed directly to the rudder, or a whipstaff (a vertical stick acting on the tiller). Early ships wheels (c. 1700) were operated to correspond to the motion of the tiller, with a clockwise motion (corresponding to a right tiller motion) turning the rudder and thus the ship to the left. Eventually the control direction of the wheel was reversed to make it more consistent with the action of a motor vehicle's steering wheel.
The wheel is typically connected to a mechanical, electric servo, or hydraulic system.
In some modern ships the wheel is replaced with a simple toggle that remotely controls an electro-mechanical or electro-hydraulic drive for the rudder, with a rudder position indicator presenting response to the helmsperson.
The design of the ship's wheel probably influenced that of the modern steering wheel. The article "Steering_wheel_(ship)" is part of the Wikipedia encyclopedia.
