Re: Furuno 1621 radar life
The radome is basically a motor, a bearing, an electrical contact, and then a solid metal antenna. All pretty robust stuff and if there's no significant salt-water corrosion and the motor and bearing look good...Did I mention it is robust stuff?
You could always pull the radome & send it in to Furuno, telling them you'd appreciate their professional opinion for the same reason. meanwhile, troll eBay and see what comes up since that could take a couple of months anyhow.
