For sale in Portland, Oregon for $750: a Furuno radar system including a well thought out, professionally fabricated, fold-down tower that fits on the center console of a Montauk 17. The radar is a Furuno RSB 0093 with a 1623 black and white display. The tower is built of powder coated, galvanized steel designed to mount between the seat backs of the cooler bench. The tower is bolted to aluminum base on the inside of the center console. Super solid system that folds down to allow easy trailering. When folded down, a standard fitted boat cover still fits well.
I am an inland boater and don't encounter fog. But I think this is a perfect system for a Whaler. It is a simple, basic radar unit that does exactly what you need radar to do: provide collision safety in a heavy fog.
Unit is located in Portland, OR. Asking $750.
More pictures available if interested.
[Nota Bene: I changed Fig. 2. and Fig. 3 to correct the aspect ratio of the images; the originals were arbitrarily constrained to the incorrect aspect ratio and showed a distorted view.--jimh]
For Boston Whaler boats or related gear
