Dreaming On Equipment

Having been built specifically for a coastal charter fleet, Dreaming On had very little in the way of real offshore equipment.

When we flew to Belize to take delivery, we carried a new 12" Chart Plotter, Navigation System Network Switch, AIS, (Automatic Identification System), Sirius Satellite Weather Receiver, Single Side Band Radio Receiver, Graphic Nav Display for the nav table, EPIRB, hand held VHF, hand held GPS.

In Rio Dulce we modified the helm station to take the larger chart plotter which involved making a new fibreglass profile, and installed the above equipment.

It was impossible to carry a Radar system to Belize, but the AIS turned out to be magic. The Yucatan Channel is busy with large commercial traffic and we could see it all up to 20 miles away and know where it was heading and what danger it represented.

Since returning to Fort Lauderdale, with engine change and installations, then re-installations after the lightning strike, we have, as at January 2010 equipped Dreaming On with the following:
