The number of displays must be chosen to fit the preferences of the crew. Many users prefer separate displays for the trawl sonar and the live video feed. Colour displays are not included in the standard delivery from Simrad. These are commercial items that can be purchased locally.
The winch system on the trawl deck and the 3rd wire cable must also be provided by a third party manufacturer.
