Hurry up John watching that radar going round has hynotised me.
yes she has Bridge control the one lever system that one finds on Lister blackstone engines, the telegraph is the emergency system and used only when finished with engines.. The laptop on the chart table was connected to the top of the crane jib via a router and sent a signal to the laptop, everytime the grab closed a coloured dot was then made on the plotting chart of the dredge area so basically it was a case of colouring in the whole dredge area with dots transmittered from the grab position, therefore if you had some uncoloured areas on your dredge chart it shows that your grab has,nt been there yet, bit like painting with numbers...
Just sent one to Karbine Ben to say that is the way to do it!!
Also I apologise for not replying to your previous one about if I knew somebody, can't find the thread, and lot of problem with computer as well, red wine and computers don't mix!!
