is a Furuno 24-mile LCD. We have the radome on a mast mounted on
the davits, 5m above
the water. This is perhaps not enough, as we don't get returns from
as far as 24 miles, even from islands.
radar has a very good watchman feature that allows us to set a watch
zone (in angle and range brackets) that wil sound an alarm if a
contact is detected in the zone; very useful for night watches.
is also very good at picking up squalls (from the rain scattered
return) - giving warning of shifting and increasing winds and rain
at night when they're hard to see.
