Does anyone know if the new Raymarine radomes have the same bolt hole patterns as the Pathfinder radomes?

My manual for the recent 4k Radome says 9.17" wide and 5.57" stearn to bow.
I don't know your Pathfinder mounting dimensions.
All docs are available as PDF on Rays web site as PDF's. The dimensions are inside my owners manual under installation.

depends on what you call Pathfinder. Generally if a mount says raytheon/raymarine "pathfinder" bolt pattern, it means the 1997 and newer 2kw/18" and 4kw/24 inch radomes, both the nice sleek ones that came out in 1997, and the retarded looking upside down-tuperware-pie platter from hell models that came out 2 years ago. Raytheon, long before the recreational side became Raymarine, has used the pathfinder name on its radars since the 70's, only taking a break during the r##/r##x/r##xx generations in the mid 80's to mid 90's.

Also be aware the 2kw/18 Raymarine has a larger bolt pattern than the 4kw/24 Raymarine

Correction, the RD218 and the RD424 have the same bolt pattern 141.5mm FWD & AFT and 233 mm from side to side.
Sorry about that.

I've since figured that out.
