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.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
