Peter,
I notice the telegraph peeking out on the left hand side, does the Abigail H have bridge control?

Hurry up John watching that radar going round has hynotised me.
James,
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...

Thanks for that Peter, quite a smart system with the laptop there.
I wish we still had emergency telegraphs like that!
