He's trying to do this for as little $$$ as possible. A backstay mount is probably going to be more expensive than a pole mount. All of the backstay mounts I've seen are fairly to really pricey... while a non-gimbaled pole mount could be made fairly cheaply.
It would help if Laguz said what kind of boat this was going to be put on... and running the cabling for the radar will still be an issue.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
