Good one GoodDays!

The upper support bracket  should keep it all steady and prevent anything working lose.  Guess you can buy more Starboard now with all the dough you saved;)

Went out today fishing with my Granddaughter and Better Half. (also wanted to trial run my "new" radar)

We got skunked and my Granddaughter got sick and threw up. Her brother and sister have both gotten over the Flu. Looks like it finally got her too.

The good news is that the radar works great. Everything functioned as it is suppose to. I removed it from the boat when I got home and it only took a few minutes.

One thing that I am going to change is to shorten the mast by about 10 inches.  The bottom of the dome is about 20" above my head when I am standing, so I need to bring it down a bit.

Other than that, I didn't find any other issues.  Now I need to test it on the open sea.

Another successful project by Croaker Stroker... congrats. Now I want to see pictures of when seagulls or others use it for a perch. It be a great place for a pelican to await his next meal.
