A ship wheel is the method used to change the course of a ship. It is attached to the helm by the steering machinery. The ship wheel is attached to the mechanical system that moves the ship.
In older times instead of a wheel a tiller was used which was in a bar shape. However the wheel improved the ability to move the ship with ease. Car builders probably got the ideal of the steering wheel from ships and it gives the feel of sailing smoothly down the road.
Furniture can be made from ship wheels. One of the most popular is the ship wheel table. These are beautiful pieces that will impress your guests. Other things made from ship wheels are barometers, lamps and more. A ship wheel lamp would be interesting to add to your room shipping theme. The boat steering wheel speed knob can be found here too.

I really like the picture shown at the top. It shows God or Jesus guiding us through life. He holds your hand and will take the wheel if you let Him. As long as you don't leave Him he will always be there. Even if you tell Him to leave He will always take you back. Always bring everything that bothers you in prayer to your Heavenly Father. It will make you feel better about any difficulty knowing that you can safely leave it in His hands. If you let Him He will guide you in life and make sure you go in the right direction.
I have been in a boat several time but the most interesting boat of all was a small submarine. It was yellow of course and two people could sit inside. A family friend named Dave built the submarine. And he liked to make things that were different from the normal. He spent some time on this sub and finally the day came when he took it to the harbor. We went with him to watch him launch his submarine. Unfortunately he didn't have anyway to test his project before taking it to the water so could not know that it would refuse to sink. Since the sub would not go under water it became a small yellow boat instead. However we all took turns riding in it and it was loads of fun. One downside to all the fun was that the newspaper people were there and it became front page news but Dave took all this in stride and didn't seem bothered by it. He was to busy building his next project.
I love the old traditional vintage ship steering wheels. They look so nice on the wall or made into furniture like a table. The tables are clear so you can see the wheel underneath while you eat. It makes a great conversation piece.
I have always liked this picture of Jesus helping to steer the boat of life. He is our guide and when He died to save the world all were included. The only reason why anyone is lost is because they donít want Him ruling over their life. When Jesus rules us he will remove selfishness and change our lives so that we can be safe to join all the un-fallen beings in our universe.
When I was a child I experienced going out on the ocean in boat. The waves tossed and turned us and I was proud of that fact that I never got seasick. Unfortunately that didnít happen when I went on a cruise a few months ago. We hit rough water and I was terribly sick. It wasnít until I took some medication that I was able to function.
This photo is really nice and shows a vintage ship with the wheel in the foreground. Some of these antique ships are fixed up and made seaworthy. There is probably a waiting list to be able to work on one of these.
It is amazing that such a small wheel can control such a big ship. The steering machinery has to be very precise and is a big improvement over the bar shaped tiller that was used before this was invented.
This photo is a close up view and gives you the chance to see the real deal.
The most interesting boat I have ever floated in was a yellow submarine. When I was a child our friends had a dad who loved to make interesting things. His job to support his family was delivering water bottles to homes and businesses and this can get a little boring at times so on the job he would dream big things.
So on his free time he made a yellow submarine. Finally the day came when he was ready to launch it. The ocean wasnít very far away so our family went to see the fun. The submarine was picked up by a crank that was used to launch boats and gently sat in the water.
The dad got in and pulled the glass covering over his head and off he went. Unfortunately the sub would not sink. He went around several times while we watched. The local newspaper was there too and took some photos of what was happening.
Once the dad gave up on getting the sub to sink he gave us all rides in it as if it was a boat. I enjoyed riding in it and wasnít totally disappointed that it could not sink.
