Questus Marine's patented design automatically keeps your 18" radar antenna level with the horizon at all times while boating, regardless of the angle of boat heel, thereby preventing target loss found in most conventional radar antenna mounting systems.
No port/starboard radar target loss
Economical, easy installation
Fits 2KW 20" or smaller raydomes
Includes mounting hardware for 101" height (25" or 50" extensions available)
May face forward or aft of backstay
No boat modifications required
Aesthetically pleasing in appearance
This gimbaled self-leveling radar antenna mount provides an ideal installation when sailboat skippers want to see targets even while heeled over when sailing hard on the wind. The Questus Backstay model can be mounted in two basic configurations: radome mounted forward of the backstay, or raydome mounted aft of the backstay. The standard stainless steel support tube can be located forward of the backstay or aft of the backstay.(Can also fit around the backstay with different tube configuration sold separately.) Does not require modification to the vessel or rigging (sailboats with hydraulic backstay adjusters can only use fore or aft postions for support tube).
Questus systems are innovative in design and aesthetically pleasing while maintaining the graceful lines of the boat.

The Questus gimbaled backstay radar mount was developed in 1989 by a Marblehead, Massachusetts sailor who, as is often the case, wanted something better than a fixed mast or pole mount on his 1974 Tartan 41
Allen DeSatnick has the means to do it right. He owns a successful company that makes surgical instruments and equipment including implants. A 54 year old engineer educated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he knows and has high regard for precision work.
Introduced in 1990, the Questus radar antenna mount is a very technical and finely made piece of equipment. Over 3,000 systems have been sold.
Made to high standards, the quality is tightly controlled with precision engineering. For sailboat back stay mounts, the radar antenna mount torque loads are transmitted through the Questus hydraulic unit, down the Stainless steel pole to the deck. The cast base plate has a hole to carry the electrical cable through the deck to the radar mount. The Questus hydraulic cylinder even has a thermal expansion chamber to compensate for temperature changes... ideal for use in the tropics.
Hi, I have been very satisfied with your radar mount (forward backstay mounting). Now, after five years and the mast on all the time, I need to dismount it for radar antenna repair. Do you have an instruction to mail me how to do it?
(Let me know if you need a photo of my mounting then I need your e-mail address.)
