Oubul Van Dyk - Skipper of Silver Katonkel

Marine Diesel & Electronics installed the first MAQ Sonar in South Africa on his vessel.

"I don't ever want another sonar, when the owners want to move me to a bigger vessel I will go but not without my MAQ.

He said "Especially in the shallow water and patches of bad ground the sonar works excellent where the guys with the other brands struggle to detect fish. If the ground is too hard the MAQ works excellent with the 5° beam and we fish most of the time in this area". He also likes the software changes that we often load on his sonar -- there is always improvement. He can't wait for OBS (Omni Beam Stabilization).

Before installing the sonar, his Boss said he can have the sonar but he must catch 6,000 tonnes for the season. By the end of the season, he was at 9,000 tonnes.
