How long will it last??

Over the weekend a customer on the Dry Stack has decided to mount this to the top of his "A" frame!

Can't see it lasting for long - am I wrong?

Anyone got any experience?

Can't decide which I like the least...the bracket design or the 53 ratchet clips

Seriously, it's just a template to assess height and stuff, right?

Perhaps it's designed like Japanese sky scrapers are to absorb the vibration from earthquakes. Designed to wobble so it absorbs the impact stresses. Not sure I'm convinced tho'

Bye-bye radome!

I predict "bye-bye radome" as soon as he hits anything other than flat calm water!
