The sand glass on the deck was usually next to a bell (ships strike), and the ships boy (called a Grommet) was responsible for turning the glass over, and ringing the ships bell at the same time, so that the helmsman could make sure he turned his glass at exactly the same. The ships bell had many uses; to indicate the time aboard the ship and hence to regulate the sailors duty watches; for safety in foggy conditions; signaling; used in gunnery control; the Dutch Navy of the 17th century rang the bell as an order to open fire; as boat gongs indicating officers and dignitaries boarding or leaving the ship and one of the most memorable traditions for sailors and their families involves the use of ships bells as baptismal fonts for shipboard christenings (the name of the baptized child would usually be engraved on the bell).
