View of the wheelhouse equipment aboard the Ocean Harvester, typical of inshore trawlers in the 70s and 80s before GPS and PCs were introduced. Top right can be seen the Kelvin Hughes navigator that contributed to the demise of Deccas monopoly of navigation at sea. The unit could be bought for £1200 whereas the Decca navigator cost almost that to rent per annum!
