mightyhorton is on a distinguished road
I like mine up on the mast. It is out of the way. Buying more cable and having to climb the mast are not really valid reasons to be against placing it up there, it is a one time job. You have to buy some sort of mount either way. I don't use a 140% so don't know about that. The more stuff you have on the back of the boat the less clean air you have for your wind vane steering and the less real estate you have for other stuff that you can't mount up your mast. Shades your solar panels when stern mounted.
