Echomaster Marine supplied and installed the full wheelhouse electronics package on the latest completion from Anderson Marine, the Kingfisher K20 - Carol Ann (PD175)
The Carol Ann has been fitted with the New Hondex HE-7380 Multiple Beam Echosounder. The HE-7380 is capable of searching a wider area up to 50 degrees at 200kHz in real time mode, with 5 beams in 10 degree steps. With the ability to set your display to show both the left and right side as well as the A Scope, you are able to see at a glance where the fish are in relation to the vessel.
This unique feature proved so sucessful at tracking Mackerel, a new order was received within 2 hours of the Carol Ann completing sea trials.
Carol Ann is also equipped with an Olex 3D Seabed Mapping Chartplotter and Lowrance HDS7m providing GPS information to the Olex and Icom IC-411 VHF. The HDS7m also serves as the vessel's back-up chartplotter and 2 kW HD Radar.
A Simrad AP35 Autopilot System with S35 Steering Lever, is interfaced to the Olex Chartplotter to provide accurate route navigation. This simple to use feature is now standard on many vessels.
Anderson Marine will have a demonstration boat fitted with an Echomaster Marine electronics package at Seawork 2011 in Southampton from 14th June to 16th June 2011, and Scottish Skipper Expo in Aberdeen on 24th and 25th June 2011.
