    When I reenlisted, back in 99 or so, I was the CO's driver and well had him swear me in on the Bridge of the USS Bataan. We had been floating off the coast of a foreign country for a while and he commented to the captain of the ship about me being his driver. Well the Captain of the ship let me take the helm for about 10 minutes or so and had the Watch Officer give me directions to turn. He had me do one of those because about 5 minutes into me driving, they were planning a man overboard and man, that thing banked hard. I was stoked for a while, saying that I was the first arine to take the helm of the USS Bataan, even give me a little plaque to hang on the wall. You would think that those things had huge wheels but I would guess that this one is about 12" or so in diameter.

    I wish I still had the pictures........

    that looks like a starboard turn to me(right), but I only had to hitch a ride with the Navy (seagoing bellhops) once, so I could be wrong.

    The ship is coming about hard To port ( the left side of the ship) The right side of the ship is Starboard. Port and starbord on a ship or vessel are always from the helmsman's point of veiw

    Gotta admit she is heeling to starboard pretty heavy.
