If you put it on the console / screen frame you also run a serious risk of getting stabbed in the eye by it - raiders get quite whippy when you start bouncing over waves!

I used a transom pole on my old Searider (no frame) but the new boat had a frame so I used the 10(ish) Glomex mount as shown about halfwaydown here:
http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=23951
the main decision was down to being able to U- bolt it straight round the 40mm dia pole.

And yes, it gets precariously close to eye level when folded forward, but has the advantage that it will also fold back over the top of the pole, so can be moved properly out the way should I be messing with the engine!

Mind you if you have a straight pole, there's nothing to stop you screwing the raider bracket to the top of it.....
