View of the Wheelhouse Electronics
The fishing vessel Sandy B is equipped with a host of advanced electronics. We went with the largest Northstar display we could fit on the dashboard. Integrated into the Northstar are the gps, fishfinder, and digital radar. The Northstar is fitted with high resolution navigation and bathymetric charts. We have interfaced our autopilot,radio, engine management system and LCD to the Northstar as well. Redundancy has always been important. Backup navigation consists of our furuno gps interfaced to a 17 inch Laptop. Of course the laptop is also equipped with the latest navigation and bathymetric charts.
