Paddle ships

Paddle ships

The use of wheel paddles in China originates from the Middle Ages, when large vessels were needed for navigating China’s substantial riparian environment. These ships, like many others around the world, were built with two different types of propulsion: they could either use sails when the wind was good, or resort to the use of paddle wheels operated by marines on board using a treadmill. The fact that the Chinese even tried to fend off British marine forces during the Opium Wars with these vessels attests to the viability and utility of their design.
