Some of the 8 compasses on board. Many problems were experienced due to the deviation caused by the iron hull.

Warriors lower steering position. Warrior's steering was under the control of the helm - controlled by two wheels, one on the upper deck aft and one directly below on the main deck. Each wheel has space for eight men - in rough conditions the helm would be manned by 16 men, 8 on each deck, who would struggle to hold the ship on course

The main crew were organised into messes, with each mess occupying the space between two of the main guns. A table and bench seats were lowered from the deckhead and provided seating for some 18 men. Racks on the ships side contained all the plates, mugs, cutlery and other equipment for the men at that table.
