Bait Boats - Echo Sounder & GPS



The Fulcrum Navigator is a satellite navigation system designed for baitboats of any manufacture.

As well as a number of other functions, it replaces physical marker buoys with an invisible electronic version. It can store and retrieve up to seventy five electronic markers which can then be used to guide your baitboat to a spot with high precision and ease – time and again, day and night on any water in the world.

The system comprises two parts, a boat transponder which contains the satellite receiver and a shore based handset mounted LCD display. The boat transponder is usually powered directly by the boat and the display by internal rechargeable NMH batteries.

The boat transponder uses satellites to find its location on earth and sends this information to the shore based unit. The shore unit then calculates where the boat is, relative to the ‘marker’, and provides simple distance and direction indications as to how to get to the marker. In addition to this, the display indicates the voltage of the boat battery together with an ability to warn you when the boat battery is getting low.

Another very useful feature on the display is an arrow indicating which direction the boat is heading – obvious at fifty yards but not quite so easy at two hundred in poor light.

When the transponder is initially connected to the baitboat it will usually take about 40 seconds to obtain a fix. It can take longer under certain poor signal circumstances and locations.

To navigate to the current marker you use the boat symbol to represent yourself driving the boat. If the marker appears to the right of the boat then the boat needs to be steered right until the marker symbol is directly in front of the boat symbol and vice-versa.

Once the boat is central and within the large marker symbol you are within a few meters of the stored marker. Once you are within one meter of the marker the unit will issue a triple beep. You can use this sound to trigger the dropping of bait and/or line on this spot.

Accurate baiting - time & time again!




The Graphic Sonar Receiver
This highly advanced graphic sonar was developed by Fulcrum Designs to compliment the already extensive range of accessories available to owners of Angling Technics baitboats. It incorporates advanced digital signal processing to help differentiate between weed and sand or gravel. The method it uses is quite different to that of the ordinary fish finders.
