Furuno Offers New Radar

For Workboats, Smaller Vessels —Free Literature Available—

Furuno recently introduced what the company says is one of the finest small dome antenna radars ever in- troduced on the U.S. market, the

Model 1830. This new radar, replac- ing the well-known M1800, has such performance features as full 3-kw output, a large, bright, high-resolu- tion 10-inch rasterscan display, high definition four-level quantization,

Furuno's exclusive MIC receiver, off-centering for forward range ex- tension, Echo Plot to assess course and speed of other targets, and trackball-controlled EBL, EVRM, cursor and Guard Zone.

The M1830 provides eight range

I scales from 1/4 to 24 n.m. and has a newly designed lightweight dome antenna for easy installation. When connected to an external nav receiv- er, the M1830 displays position in

Lat/Lon, vessel speed and range/ bearing to a selected waypoint at the bottom of the CRT. Also, all radar system settings and control readouts are displayed.

Furuno's new M1830 has the styl- ing, performance features and reli- ability to make it the perfect radar for yachts, smaller fishing vessels and workboats. It operates from a universal 10.2 to 40 VDC power source and requires just 50 W.

New Lifesaving Equipment

Rules Proposed For Large

Commercial Ships

The Coast Guard recently an- nounced proposed changes in the regulations for lifesaving equipment on large commercial ships. The pro- posed regulations are the result of recent revisions of an international plant which has passed vibration and shock testing. 3,000 gpd. 3-stage flash evaporator for LSD 41

Class. 30,000 gpd. Successfully passed shock testing.

Sea Convention, or SOLAS.

The proposed rules would also carry out a number of recommenda- tions that resulted from marine cas- ualty investigations by the Coast

Guard and the National Transpor- tation Safety Board. Lifesaving equipment regulations for Great

Lakes ships and other ships in domestic trade that are not covered by SOLAS would also be revised to require more effective lifesaving de- vices.

Under the proposed regulations: • Large commercial ships operat- ing in the ocean or on the Great

Lakes would be required to carry a new type of Emergency Position In- dicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) that operates on a worldwide satel- lite frequency. EPIRBs alert the

Coast Guard and other foreign search and rescue forces to a vessel casualty, and provide a homing bea- con to locate a vessel in distress.

The new satellite EPIRBs would be phased in over a six-year period. • Ferries and passenger ships operating in water below 59 degrees

F would have to carry lifeboats or rafts to keep all survivors out of the water. • New large passenger ships in ocean service would be required to have partially enclosed lifeboats with rigid canopies at each end, and an open area in the center that can be quickly closed with a foldable cover. • Totally enclosed lifeboats would be required on most new large cargo and tanker ships.

The proposed regulations would also allow the use of some new life- saving systems, including free-fall lifeboats, marine escape slides, and inflatable buoyant apparatus.

The Coast Guard's proposed reg- ulations were published in the April 10 issue of the Federal Register, with a four-month comment period.
