Default Sea Hunt 225 Triton with 4G Radar

I have purchased a sea hunt 225 triton with a hardtop and it has a 150hp Yamaha 4 stroke
I am having the boat outfitted with the new Lowrance HDS Gen 2 - 9" with the sidescan.

I want to add the 4G radar, but was wondering if this would have any adverse effects on the boat. Like making it top heavy or hurting the performance? anyone have this setup, or something like it?

Does a boat this size really need radar? I fish the back Bays of South Jersey, Wildwood / Cape may Area. The SouthernDelaware Bay and offshore reefs 10 miles or so out on nice days. Not much at night, but I would like to do more. I figure if I'm stuck in the fog a couple times it may be worth it.

I use my radar all the time in the fog. Sure helps get you out on foggier days.

Can't imagine it'll have any adverse effects on the boat.
