I have also pictured the front part of the wheel house, where one of these wheels also is partly visible. Also on ship spotting.

Hi Csaba-I assume the Helmsman takes the one on right to watch the other 3 Cadets-Less time than one shot each

The following extracted from Wikipedia....

"When carrying cadets, the ship is usually steered from the manual stern rudder station, which is operated by four steering wheels with two men each. At other times, the hydraulically assisted steering on the bridge is used".

That might a manual steering setup. Manual meaning not supported by hydraulic. Therefore more man-power needed

What is the purpose of triple steering wheel?
