Designing a radar mount to raise the radar slightly
Raising the radar takes the vertical beam angle above the length/width of the roof

2018 started with some pretty cold and wild weather so after making a new mount to raise the radar antenna by 20cm above the wheelhouse roof, the jobs moved indoors. We want to insulate the wheelhouse roof and we didn’t want the radar antenna to be buried in insulation which could degrade its performance.
The next job (apart from the usual maintenance) was to lay enough rustic oak floor to build the new kitchen in the newly lined out aft area.
