Rudders and Wheels

Rudders and Wheels

Nowadays, steering a boat doesn't require much thought; the boat goes where you turn the wheel. Those of us who use an outboard motor know that steering with a tiller is not like steering a car. You want the rudder to point the way you want to go, which means pointing the tiller in the opposite direction. After the invention of the ship's wheel about 1703, the transition from rudder orders to wheel orders was not without difficulty, and sometimes resulted in tragedy.

What Our Customers Are Saying


Dear Great Lakes, We received the black 6 1/2 inch boat cleats last week. We are using them for the folding doors in the entry way. They make great handles; we are getting a lot of compliments. We no longer have a boat, but love our "nautical room", and the "handles" look great in the room! Thanks for your prompt service. Sincerely, Louis and Beth/

Louis of California, USA

You guys are the absolute best!!!! I am letting everyone I know about great lakes skipper. You guys have a lot of off the wall stuff that just isn't available anymore... like this oil tank kit. OBSOLETE :( --

Hello Great Lakes Skipper; I received my boat seats yesterday and I am very happy with your product. UPS did a good job of getting them to me overnight, just like you said. You (Daniel) and your knowledge played a big part in helping me choose the right seats for my boat. I will recommend Great Lake Skipper and your services to others. Thank you. Jared

I just love the new website! I am not the brightest guy when it comes to computers. But the new Shop By Category list on the side made it so easy for me to find my propeller. On the old site I used the catalog buttons. Now, I can just run my mouse up and down the screen to get what I want. Very cool!!

After ordering and purchasing 10 Gebo portlights to be shipped to Gosport ,UK, would just like to thank you all for your great service, ease of transaction and good email updates via you and ups. The total amount including UK import and taxes came to $2054.. These same portlights purchased in the UK would have cost me $4002 plus shipping ! The portlights are superb quality and totally transform the look of my boat and best of all, no more leaks! Crazy that a product made in the EU can be bought much cheaper from the states?

This is the first time I have ever felt even the desire to applaud a seller [on eBay].

Your company has gone above and beyond in helping me with providing me with a great product and service, and when there was a small defect in one marine temperature gauge from the package I got, you guys shipped me out another one 2 day priority shipping. I am taken aback by your generosity. I would have been perfectly satisfied with regular shipping as I know the engine isn’t overheating. Thank you so much for this gesture.

I will look at your guys store from now on for my marine needs if you have the parts I’m looking for.

I hope that your company stays in business for generations and that your business ethics remain the same. You have just earned my business and my referrals should I find anyone who is looking for any products you offer.

Thank you again.

EXCELLENT! I could not have asked for a nicer bimini. Our dealer wanted more than twice as much. If you are ever in town, stop in... got plenty of stripers to throw on the grill!

Lyle of Florida, USA

I just bought one of your Sea Pro Fishing Rod Rocket Launcher Racks and I'm EXTREMELY happy with the entire transaction! Super Heavy Duty Quality and one of the BEST BARGAINS I have found on the internet! Easily worth 3 times what you could get for one of these. Anyone looking at one of these should grab it before they are gone! It shipped really fast and was well protected. I don't work for Great Lakes Skipper. I am just a really happy customer of theirs. Please post this testimonial for all to see. Thanks again. What a great deal!!!

I bought a Cherrywood folding boat table top last week and I want you to know that I was very impressed with the services and how quickly it got to me. I want to let you also know that the table is gorgeous! I was a little unsure about having it shipped to Canada but you did such a great job wrapping it that when I got it in less than 3 business days it was perfect, not a scratch. Thank you so much. I am now going to order the table parts from you. This website is now under favourites. You made it such a pleasure shopping with you.

Elaine C. of Ontario, Canada

Just wanted to let you know my husband loved the new gauges. I could never have figured out what he needed without your patient help! Be assured we will make your store our first stop for new parts!

My name is Sharon and I recently ordered a Gekko Swim Platform Pad from you. I have a 2003 Gekko Revo 6.7i ski boat that I was having worked on getting serviced, new carpet, detailed, etc…and I needed to replace the swim platform pad. The Gekko 3 piece set fit my platform perfectly and my boat looks like it just left the show room floor! I am extremely pleased! The boat shop had no idea what they were going to use on my platform but I was able to do a quick Google search and found you and the Gekko pad. Thank you so much for the perfect pad and for the fast professional service and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to others and plan to use you often in the future.

FIRST RATE SERVICE! Just a quick note to say GREAT JOB with your customer service and overall service. The original phone order operator was very friendly and she knew the products. The shipping time was fast. Sadly when the product arrived it was damaged. Since the product was no longer in stock, [your customer service representative] went to work for a solution. He kept me informed along the way. Although he could not get a replacement, his efforts were to keep me happy. In the end we found a satisfactory solution. My overall experience with your company has been a delight in these times where there are so many dishonest and shady companies around. Your site is located on my favorites for marine parts and will be the first choice when ordering future parts and supplies.

Rick B. of Clifton Park, NY

I just received my order from your company and I'm extremely pleased with the quality and at such a great price !!! A local marine shop here in FLA wanted over $60 for the same item for only one (1) of the Nitro Live Well Mgt Systems, plus $90 per hour for the labor involved. Now I can go and update my Nitro 929 CDX and get both livewells up and running again myself. All I can say is thanks so much for offering such a fine quality product at such a great price. My feedback is: "Effortless transaction, great item offered, good price, super seller !!!"

Paul T. of Florida, USA

Never had such prompt service. I ordered my boat parts on Thursday, flew home Friday night, and the package was there when I got home!!

Warren H. of Ohio

Just ordered 3 sets of grab handles for my MX175 Glastron 2008. Perfect match. You're on my favorites list. Great photos too.

David W. of California

I received the Seats the other day, (Fantastic) Exactly what I was looking for, style and color is spot on. Packaging and wrapping was excellent no damage to goods. Firstly I want to thank you for your excellent service you provided and prompted response on emails. Secondly some feedback on your web site, very informative and clear. Very Good. Thanks again.

Nick of California

Hi Great Lakes Skipper; Thank you. The piano hinges arrived yesterday afternoon and they are just what we need. Thanks so much for the great service too. Be assured that we will buy from you again!

Rick and Bonnie D. of Tennessee

Thank you very much for the Medallion gauges. I have been looking for these gauges for over two years as I am restoring an old Larson and these are beautiful. Believe me, I am telling all my fellow boaters to check you out!

K. H. of Bowling Green, KY

Hello! I just thought I would write and tell you that the boat upholstery that we ordered from your upholstery shop for our trawler was everything that we hoped for with respect to the color depiction on your website. Our cushions turned out beautifully, and we couldn't believe how fast we received your product. Thank you, once again, and we will be referring our boating friends to your website with great enthusiasm!

Bob and Arlene P. of Florida

My replacement lights arrived safe and well yesterday, so a big 'thankyou' for your wonderful efforts. I cannot tell you how delighted I am with the quality of the items and most importantly, how swiftly and courteously our small problem was rectified. It is always a bit of a leap into the unknown buying items from overseas and my experience with Great Lakes Skipper is the best to date - your customer service is first class! You may be assured of my return business, and once again, thank you!
