  • Patent number: 5111212
    Abstract: The mount disclosed herein facilitates the mounting of a radar antenna on a sailboat subject to heeling. A pivotable bracket providing a single horizontal axis of rotation only is supported on the upper end of a tube which surrounds the lower portion of the usual sailboat backstay, the tube preventing rotation around the backstay. The antenna is mounted with its center of gravity below the pivot axis and viscous damping is provided to prevent uncontrolled swinging of the antenna.
