After ten years, and a reliable and satisfying performance, from the Simrad SP70 Sonar, William Whyte Jr. decided to upgrade to the brand new SX95 Multi-Frequency Omni-Directional Sonar.
The Forever Grateful is the first UK vessel to have installed the SX95 Sonar which is fitted with the latest scientific software designed by fishery scientists. The SX series of Sonar represent Simrad’s long standing reputation for innovation; with over 260 SX Sonars fitted worldwide. This advanced piece of equipment enables the Forever Grateful to be available for all scientific surveys in the area.
The installation work was carried out by Les Smith of Echomaster Marine Limited whilst the vessel was undergoing a refit at Båtbygg in Måløy. Les then sailed with the vessel on its return voyage to Fraserburgh and completed all commissioning of the SX95 Sonar.
