Question for mounting a Garhauer radar pole

I have everything I need now to mount my new radar pole. Our sailboat has a canoe stern with the a raised cockpit coaming boards which go all the way around the cockpit. So, my first thought was to mount the base on the vertical to the back side of the fiberglass cockpit coaming boards. The davits are attached there as well, so it is plenty strong enough. After looking closer at this with the outboard engine lift it only has an arm length of 26" which will drag the outboard up the side of the boat. So, i'm looking to potentially mount the pole on the hull and outside of the stern pulpit. I know my question is boat specific, but any preferences to mounting a radar pole on the inside or outside on the stern pulpit? Any potential problems with mounting it outside?

Thank you,
