Echomaster have installed a 160Khz. Wassp Multibeam echosounder on James Duthie’s Fraserburgh based pelagic trawler Sunbeam.
Also installed were a Furuno SC30 GPS Gyro and Maretron SSC200 Rate Gyro with Pitch and Roll. The Sunbeam’s Olex chartplotter was upgraded with a Multibeam software module and a new 8-way video matrix system including two Simrad 26” LCD monitors was installed.
During the autumn fishing season skipper James Duthie reported he was very impressed with the seabed mapping capabilities of the Wassp, especially on the Olex presentation.
