Bridge on Trawler Huntress 1979

View of the bridge aboard the 87-foot stern trawler Huntress, built at the Washburn & Doughty yard in Woolwich, Maine, in 1979. Note the radar monitor near the wheel. A modern bridge would have GPS, a fish finder, an auto pilot, and several radios. In this set up it is likely that the radio is out of view and there should be a LORAN available. This vessel has a compass with large compensators at each side, common on steel ships.
