As it was dragged along, the log rotated and the revolutions registered on the dials on its side. This example is made of brass with an enamel plate for the three dials, which are marked in miles from 0 to 100 in tens, from 0 to 10 in units, and from 0 to 1 in quarters. Each of the five fins at the back is inscribed with an anchor above the letters'T W' (for Thomas Walker).
It consisted of a brass rotator linked to a geared mechanical recording mechanism. Here is the link from Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, UK. Absolutely beautiful very large, item , of museum quality. Size is - 53x13x13 cm weight 4.5 kg including the box. Thank You and good Luck!
