Blimey - that's a setup and a half

I bet you show up on radar... "XO, we have a large tanker on the starboard bow and closing at 45 knots, any ideas?"

deck to base of scanner platform is about 2.2m, just enough to stop your brain from frying if you're stood directly in front. That won't be a problem with the broadband as they aren't supposed to cook your head.

Yes there supposed to have very low levels of head cooking on the model I'm looking at.

My A frame sits quite high, was just wondering if I'd get away with the height if I went for same set up you have, with reflector below dome.

Your set up looks fantastic but I don't think I could get away with the extra height. Going to nip down to the marina soon and get measuring.

Thanks for picture.

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel. There's a voice in my head that drives my heel. It's my baby callin', says I need you here and it's half past four and I'm shifting gear.

Random question of the day.

If you have one of these whizzy broadband radars set on short range, and you stand up, can you see your head on the radar?

A short trip sat on a rear pod of Jigsaw (ex-Bedajim), would result in the impression of a radar in the back of the head.
