I'd second using a pole or mast mount rather than using a backstay mount. Unless his backstay has been upsized, I'm not too crazy about putting the weight, stress and windage of a backstay radome mount on the backstay. If he's got a split backstay with an SSB or is looking to add an SSB at anytime, you'll regret having the backstay radome mount.

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.
