The vertical beam width is likely 25* on that radar. You may see a little bit of difference between target detection dead ahead when the boat is moving slowly and when the bow is higher when up on plane. But you will be quite "safe" in either case, at least wrt the radar performance.
I had two different radars on our 270 over the years and no wedge.
Thanks bud. Not trying to be cheap, just trying to nail down the level of priority. Right now, the trailer is at the very top of my concerns but getting blowback about the radar from the photos and can never nail down just why and to what extent.
So, I can add it, and may do so, but does not have to be this week, got it.
Tonight will be getting a 6 ton bottle jack so I can lift and test tires, then tomorrow will be hooking up everything in the electronics box and testing. If the wheels are okay on the trailer, I will be good to go for Friday, otherwise it will be another week.
