Fall Lay-Up in Progress - AIS Operational This Fall

Captains Remy Champt and Allen Wolfe this morning as work continues on de-rigging the schooner Inland Seas.

Our new AIS (Automatic Identification System) transponder installed in the captain's cabin. This unit sends and receives position information of commercial ships in the area.
Our array of antennas on the lazy board: From left to right: GPS for pilot house display, GPS for AIS, LORAN C, weather sensors, GPS for outside chart plotter, VHF for AIS transmit and receive. The yellow opject in the foreground is our EPIRB (emergency position indicating radio beacon).
