Default Radome mount for cc

I just bought a 10" scanstrut mount for my new garmin 18hd radome. It is going atop my fabric t-top on my sea pro 235cc. Is this going to be too tall. I'm second guessing myself. I just really want to see buoys and the old telephone poles coming through appalachicola bay in the dark.

Don't know if 10" is too tall. But there is never too tall to mount a radar just to look further. But whether it will look "right", that's different question.

My radome mounts right on top of the t top.

I think you can see buoys. But seeing telephone poles ... that will need some practices.

Thanks Chong! I think a 10 is going to be a bit tall and look out of place, this all depends on the boat and the location/ rake of the mount.

6 is what I would typically suggest. Can you post a pic of the boat?
