The best way of making that look anything near right is to build a smaller aframe to go on top of your original one. The best way would be to remove the frame and weld the new one on top

even if it does stay up there (which i doubt), the sea - sky-sea - sky-sea - sky-sea - sky-sea - sky-sea - sky will not give the HD vision he has paid for

That really is a POS Probably made by the same bloke who made the drybox brackets. The radar reflector is a waste of time an 'all. Can't understand someone willing to shell out top dollar for the HD scanner & then mount it on that abomination, it takes all sorts I suppose.

Check out the method used to connect the radar frame to the A frame, looks like its clamped to the A frame with more flat bar.
