NASA depth sounder and GPS/ log provided by a Panasonic Toughbook laptop
with Chart Plotter and satnav – gives a very large screen tough sat nav. Old impeller driven Log still
in place but unreliable and now obsolete.
A Standard Horizon
hand held VHF radio ( floating with GPS) was purchased new in 2017 and is included – this has never
been used , still in the box.
Navigation lights are traditional copper with original brass oil lamp fittings inside but converted to
LED , with white stern light so nav lights are rules compliant, There is also an LED tricolour masthead
fitting that seems to have stopped working probably the cable connector , needs checking the next
time the mast is lowered
The Cornish Crabber is an enthusiasts boat. An unashamedly traditional copy of the working boats of these islands, she sports a substantial gaff cutter rig complete down to her Jackyard Topsail (or should that be up to...?). Flush decked, sitting headroom below and with minimal modern conveniences she simply oozes character.
A very traditional boat, rigged as original, without winches, all blocks are ash faced with stainless cores and most ropes are synthetic but traditional “Hemp look alike”
