Wheelhouse on Dragger "E.G. Winters"

The dragger E.G. Winters was built at the Harvey F. Gamage shipyard in South Bristol, Maine, in 1976. This photo shows the central position of a radar unit. A corner of a radio shows on the left. Today's wheelhouse would have a plotting depth finder, a GPS unit, an auto pilot, and aboard a fishing vessel, a fish finder.

"Red" Boutilier took this picture as he reported on fishing vessel construction in the 1970s.
