Stern radar mount

Hi all.

Here is one of my many current DIY projects. We will be putting our radar on a pole off the stern. I needed:
  • an adjustable (horizontally) platform for the radar 1/4 aluminum
  • a pole (about 8 feet long - thick walled aluminum 2 inch)
  • and a base to connect to the boat

The pole will be additionally supported by connecting it to the stern rail in three places (so , don't worry about that part.

Here is a picture of the radar platform that will go on top of the pole.



Total cost was $36.00 for the pole and the piece of 1/4 inch flat stock aluminum and about $20.00 for the bottle wine I gave the guy who cut, drilled and welded it. Hey - what are friends for, right?

Cheers
