  • Radar reflector on a 32XX-gctid386419

    Any suggestions on where to install a radar reflector (see image) on a 32XX?

    I don't have a radar on the arch for the moment but will possibly get one eventually. So the arch is not a good place for the reflector.

    If not on the arch then on the sloped fiberglass slightly below and forward of the flybridge glass. Obviously oriented as per the manufacturers instruction which I assume would be straight up and down with that style reflector.

    There are differing opinions to the value of radar reflectors. But it can't hurt to add one. Keep in mind they are not a 100% guaranty of your radar signature being improved depending on direction, angle and sea state.

      Hang on underside of arch or from bimini frame if you have one. Reflectors work very well. If you run your radar a lot, it is really easy to see which boats have them.

          My experience with the Mobri 2 like you show is they are rather cheaply made. They are long and narrow and the base has only 2 small plastic tabs securing it which are makes the unit wobbly. This unit is better suited for sailboats mounted to the rigging. The Mobri 3 has a base that gets screwed to your arch and the reflector is easily installed/removed with a smart twist lock design. This unit is also not as tall and very sturdy in comparison although about $40 more but well worth it.

            Zap strap it parallel to a stainless rail. No base or hole drilling required.

              Try this kind of setup.

              This one is a double, but you can get a single mount for the radar, and mount the reflector on the pipe behind and above the radar antenna. I have mine mounted this way on a homemade mount and it works fine.
