Radar Mast Mount MFG in CA with SS Tubing Guard??

A rep here told me about a MFG here in CA that makes a SS radar mount that features a circular wrap around tube to prevent the 150% Genoa from getting caught on the radome and mount and to prevent chafing. He showed me a pic on their site but I forget the name and have searched everywhere. Does anyone know what the name of this outfit is?

I have no idea what the cost is or if it's worth it, but if anyone has any other options for mounting, I'm interested to hear it. I'm trying to keep costs down and simplify the install, so I looked at a rear mount, but although you save some cable, it seems much more expensive than a mast mount. Am I wrong?

since the randome is circular any way i wouldn't waste money on stuff like that,never had a sail catch on the radar mount ever,mounted on the mast.

raymarine should be able to supply a light weight alloy mount specifically for your new unit.

FWIW, as far as I know Garhauer makes deck mounted 'masts/ for radar. I dunno if they make a 'mast mounted' radar mount, but They can certainly fabricate just about anything and they are very reasonably priced. nice folks too

I found them. It's Riley Marine. Pretty reasonable costs too, but looks like I'm going to stern mount for now. Too hard to get that massive cable up the mast and through the boat compared to mounting at the stern. Plus I have the option of taking the equipment off if I sell the boat.
