That mast is an excellent idea. Anyone know how high you have to get a radar transmitter to stop it frying you.

Guess Parker Ribs might have started something here.

The next craze on RIBS. Masts.

As long as it's not in a straight line with your head it will be fine - they have a pretty narrow beam width.

Its not really VMAX, they got a OK from Yamaha Japan to name them VMAX, but it is the Yamaha 250 4-stroke.
Boat is doing just under 70 knots.

Just under 70 kn is impressive!

Are those standard 250 hp 4 strokes or is there something different about them? And why putting the VMax logo on it?

I'm starting to think we need a mast on our RIB also....

Here are a couple of pics I took of your boat and mast in Sandhamn during Gotland Runt.
