Topic review - Wheelhouse
Author Message
  Post subject:  Re: Wheelhouse  Reply with quote
That started based on the idea that the pilothouse crew would have a better vantage point for navigating the confined waters of the various connecting waterways. In fog on the open lake it was to also give the pilothouse crew a better shot at seeing/hearing things infront of them. In the days before radar it was a real concern.
