Building a radar mast/post for a small boat?
Hi, I want to mount radar on a 20 foot open cockpit runabout with windshield and soft top for fishing Puget Sound year around.
I'm wondering if you have any advice for building up to an 8 ft mast, mounted to the side of the cockpit, that could pivot to reduce trailering and storage height?
What do you think of using 5/8 fir or better marine plywood with a rectangular cross section of around 3x5 to 4x6"?
A mounting board would be at the top.
I've seen extremely little info on a rig like this.
All advice will be appreciated.
