The ship I used to work on could turn a 22 foot wheel which we had off more than once while I was assigned to her.

haha oh i can play this game!! this was my last ship, kinda small by comparison to other ships ive been on, about 350ft. pic of the wheel, and yup, they hand-buffed the WHOLE wheel! not sure about the wheel size but our engine was a 8 cylinder 8200 horsepower. the second and third picture were off the ship next to us, no idea about the engines size

Did your ship "ever leave the dock". Jeeze, talk about running gear growth!
