Re: Radar mast mount from fiberglass?
I think the durability would be an issue.. Radars - esp older larger ones are not light. Sailboats' mast mounted radomes are subjected to much higher moments and stresses than powerboat radars. A molded glass mount would be preferred to glassed over ply, IMO.
But by the time you've engineered all that you may find buying a factory mount kit not such a bad deal, esp if you find one used.
