I am building a radar arch for the stern of my BCC Crystal Swan II, see attached sketch.
I am soliciting other BCC owners feed back regarding instillation and design of this type of instillation
on a BCC.

Crystal Swan II
Hull # 91
Apologies for not replying earlier to your note about a radar arch.
I don’t have any particlur expertise in radar arches, but I’m aware
that serious questions have been raised about the health aspects of
radar arches abaft the cockpit. A small number of ophthalmologists have
highlighted the increased incidence of a cataracts, in a particular and
unusual position, that may be related to radar. It’s not unlike the
fears that some express about holding mobile telephones to one’s head -
an interesting experiment, in what radio waves do (or don’t do) to soft
tissues, the results of which will only be known in years to come.
You can find a reference to the link between ‘posterior subcapsular
cataracts’ and boat radar in No. 94 (the ‘Sail Away’
annual issue), pages 11-2.
