That's the bridge. The steerage room is where they keep the steers.
You were in the Navy and I wasn't so I'll yield. However I was going by their signs (I think!) The bridge may have been the level above. See the last photo. Good to see you in the Kodak forum.

Actually that's called the wheel house (http://www.insidelst.com/01_deck.htm) while the structure above is called the Captain's sea cabin (http://www.insidelst.com/01_deck.htm). The glassed in structure is called the Conn (http://www.insidelst.com/03_deck.htm) and was originally open.

Actually, 'Bridge' and 'Wheelhouse' are synonymous. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_(ship) and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheelhouse

The structure above is the Pilothouse, usually where a pilot (a portofficial, someone not part of the ships company) guides a ship into or out of port. On US Navy ships, the pilothouse usually does not contain a wheel or engine order telegraph. If it is not enclosed, it's called a Flying Bridge' as are theopen wings on either side of the bridge.

'Conn' isthe act of directing a ship (verb), and someone who has authority to direct a ship (a pilot, the captain, or the officer of the deck) is said to 'have the conn' (noun). The person with the conn is the only person that anyone takes orders from with regard to the handling of a ship. Only the person with the conn can transfer the conn to someone else, with the single exception of the captain, who can take the conn away from anyone and can give it to anyone. While a ship is underway, someone always has the conn.

A place where a ship may be conned may be called a conning tower, but US Navy surface ships rarely had conning towers. Submarines have conning towers, first, to provide the pilot, captain or OOD with a better view from which to conn, and second, to house and protect the periscope(s), snorkel(s), and antenna (antennae).

Thanks for welcoming me, though I won't stay long. I saw "LST" and couldn't help myself.

I saw the story ofthe ship'srescue and voyage back. When I saw it would be here I made a point of seeing it and going on board. Note that I called the uppermost deck a pilot house as well based on river tugs.

Should I post this if Funny Fotos? Or maybe this is just Indiana terminology.

I suppose that "Students K1-K12" would include K9s, wouldn't it?
