Description: For about 50 years after the introduction of steam propulsion, ships were still being steered by hand. As size and speed increased, the need for power steering led to various devices being tried such as auxiliary steering propellers, swivelling main propellers and jets of water. None of these were
found to be practicable and better results were achieved with steam engines or hydraulic rams operating on a rudder. These early mechanisms were
started and stopped by hand, the position of the control having no reference to the rudder position.
