Any 44WO Owners with Radar on the Mast?

Hi all,

As I get ready to add equipment to my new arch I am considering moving my radar from its soon to be removed radar post to the mast.

I mounted my radar just above the baby stay @ 50' off of the water. I get radar signatures at about 25 - 20 miles. I have a fixed mount and have never seen where I need a rotating mount. Get AIS first and then radar.
I tried having a bad day once but I did not like it
