Append URI's showing the installation of a RADAR on a Boston Whaler. Fixing to install one on my Outrage23; would like to see how some of yours look.
Any tips would be appreciated also..

Mount the antenna for your RADAR as high as possible. The beam of the antenna should not be directed at occupants of the vessel. Usually the manufacturer provides installation recommendations.

If you will look at this web site, and the look for photo's of Whaler's you will probably see what you are looking for.

Safety, as Jim notes, dictates that the radar antenna be mounted so that the beam does not cover anyone on the boat (sitting or standing). For an outrage, the best method would be to mount it on a purpose built radar arch. Examples can be found at: http://www.boattowers.com/RadarArches.htm .
I post this link as an example on the net I was able to find. As I have not used this manufacturer, no recommendation or endorsement is implied.
Courtesy also dictates that I switch off my radar in a canal or small waterway, or when approaching a dock.
