There is always a reason for something. One is the radar dome and another is the hailer which is hung under the console A frame also if you look closely at the starboard side of that A frame you will see a stand for a FLIR thermovision camera. This will be installed at a later date and cannot be obstructed hence the forward positioning.
There will also be 2 searchlights suspended from the console frame.
With so much equipment required we had to add the addition A frame. Anyway it does look good
This A Frame is also perfect to hold on to in heavy seas
The prime role of this rib will be SEARCH hence the two Lowrance Multi function viewers which are connected in a network with sonic scan to view the sea bed, radar and GPS chartplotter, AIS for receiving and transmitting. At a later date cordless intercom will be installed .
