Does anyone else out there have a Questus self0levelling radar mount on their Pacific Seacraft? I'm curious to learn whether or not it can be set up in the radar forward configuration.

It is currently in the pole forward of the backstay, radome aft configuration, but life will be a lot easier in installing a wind generator if it ca be moved around to the front side.

The operating and installation manual indicates that you need at least two feet from the luff to a point on the backstay 8 ft. from the chainplate. I measure about 30" from the backstay to the topping lift.

The concern is that either the leech of the main, the topping lift, or the jiffy reefing lines can foul the radome with all sorts of knoarly consequences.

If anyone has any experience or thoughts on this it would br much appreciated.

Cheers,
Ryan
