Dutch to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Ships, Sailing, Maritime
Dutch term or phrase: peil zuil
This term appears in the wiring diagram of a ship. From the diagram, I deduce it is some kind of equipment. There are two of them, one at each side of the bridge (starboard and port). My guess it that it refers to a fathometer mounted on a pillar/column.
Unfortunately, no further context is available.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

sighting column


Explanation:
'Peiling' in a maritime sense does indeed refer to taking bearings or sighting. This is confirmed by Technisch Woordenboek Scheeps-regel-installatietechniek by J. Delévaque.
