VINTAGE HYDRAULIC SHIPS STEERING STATION
Presented is an early
20th Century bronze hydraulic steering station complete with a fine quality 32" wood spoked bronze wheel. The
unit comes mounted on a piece of ship's grating. Hydraulic steering stations were invented by British Admiral, Sir Edward
Augustus Inglefield, RN, KBE, (1820-1894) who also was the inventor of the anchor bearing his name and an early torpedo
The pedestal stands
43" high, not counting its base which adds 2 1/2 inches. Turning the steering wheel activates an internal pump which sends
the pressurized fluid to a port and starboard power takeoffs that if connected would drive the rudder quadrant. A truly
impressive relic of our maritime heritage.
