is on a pole aft, about 8' above deck
, and I don't regret the decision a bit. The pole has provided a home for my GPS antenna
, AIS antenna
, a dual-band ham radio
antenna, and a wifi
antenna. It also is the structure for an outboard motor lift
is easy to reach and a dead simple tilt adjustment for extended periods on one tack has been quite reliable and convenient.
In the meantime, there is plenty of stuff going up the mast
to complicate pulling the mast
without adding a huge persnickety multi-conductor cable.
