Bridge house

mmi-1.jpgPlace where the necessary equipment for navigation purposes and safety during the fishing operations are kept. The radar is used to detect ships and icebergs and the echo sounder locates the shoals. In the navigation table the ship’s course is mapped and distances are calculated.
In the bridge house there is also the ship’s radio (TSF), where the telegrapher manages the communications to land and to other ships, the chartroom and the first mate’s cabin.
