Question
Radar mounting system

I have a Alberg 35 which I am installing a Furuno 1715 radar (w/ 18" radome). I will also be installing an Aries wind van system. Will the Questus 36" backstay mount be an problem? Or would the Edson 36" mount be better suited?

Answer

The same advice that was offered to the Hunter owner…

Honestly, I think you would be happiest with the Questus. The radar mount swings the radar to the front of the backstay; it would not be an issue with the Aries.

The best reasons for the Questus - it mounts your radar in a place that is useful for little else AND it is self leveling. Radar swing in a storm when you are trying to figure things out is a hard way to learn that 30/30 degree movement side to side makes a radar near useless when you need it the most.

Keep things off poles unless it is a wind generator (and that is mounted so high as to keep your raised hands safe). From having seen a lot of boats, what seems to work best is; radar on the mast or backstay (at a conservative height), panels on an arch or hard dodger or cabin house it you have the room and wind generator on a pole that can be lowered easily for repairs or removal. Small domes (GPS) may be mounted to the arch as well or on a pole mount with all antennas fitted to one location


Question
Sailboat mounting for a radome

I have a Hunter 33/07 sailboat and bought a Raymarine radar dome. Now I have to install it and I would like some advice for pole versus mast mounting and suppliers. Also I have a strong arch as an option.
