When I got Reboot she had a Raymarine ST-50 radar unit. This was a LCD black and white unit that I had previously had on the original Reboot, a Catalina 30 that had been built in the 1980's. Yesterday with the help of Maury of Gyspysails we got the new 18" Garmin HD radar dome mounted. We also moved the radar dome location from a pole on the stern to on the mast between the first and second spreaders. This should give us a lot more range for low lying targets. Today we are shifting locations again so I should have an opportunity to see how it works out on the water.
