Open Array on a Sailboat

I have been looking into radars for my 30' sailboat ('81 Lippincott). I have found a lot of setups with open arrays and was wondering if anyone had mounted one on their sailboat or knows of anyone that has. If so did it work well, and how high did it need to be mounted? My idea was to mount it on a stern pole like I have seen radomes mounted, I work in a machine shop so fabricating a pole is no problem, but I wanted to see it it has been done and if anyone has any suggestions.

Thanks
