Since the Tugboat Urger is an educational vessel, they let you board her and take photos.  The Urger had just pulled up to the Welcome center in Brockport on the Erie Canal and was getting ready for an elementary school tour in an hour.  This is a photo of the wheelhouse which sets up high over the deck.  The wheel is connected to two thick rods that go all the way down each side of the deck back to the rudder.
