Is this a stabiliser on this workboat ?
« on: February 17, 2012, 02:14:19 AM »

Hello everyone,

I found this photo of an interesting workboat (former fishing boat) on a Norwegian boat sales website.

I am wondering if the rectangular plate device midships near the keel is a stabiliser of some kind? Can anyone confirm this and perhaps tell us how it would work?

Thank you

I don't think it is a stabilizer, I reckon its a housing for a echo sounder transducer. If it does deep sea work the transducers can be over 30 cm diameter.

Guys, I reckon you're right.

For the benefit of everyone here is a couple of links to info about these transducers and the mounting arrangements -
