Moving the radar unit to the mast

One side project that happened while we were painting our boat was to remove the radar that was mounted on the front of our boat the the mast. We had always wanted to put it on the mast where it would function better being above the boat rather than in front. Randy had to moving the wiring of the radar as well as remove the wooden mount on the front and patch those holes so we could paint over it. He purchased a radar mounting bracket for the mast and it took some rewiring, but he was able to do it. Now the radar works great and it isn’t an eyesore on the front of the boat.
