Put your antennas on the backstay!
WHY? - Several years ago all you had to worry about was the VHF antenna at the top of the mast and the loran C antenna on the stern. Now, you have to concern yourself with where to place the GPS, AIS, Wifi and
other small antennas. Boaters have been asking us for a way to get them up, and out of the reach of grabbing hands. We have the answer...
VERSATILE - KATO's new product line of Backstay Antenna Mounts can be used on any size sailboat, up to the largest ocean going cruiser. Cutters, sloops, ketches, yawls, schooners, catamarans - it doesn't matter. It has been determined that the angle of a sailboats' backstay really does not vary that much relative to the sailboats' length. For this reason, we found it convenient to simply bend the Backstay Antenna Mount main member to the median angle. The antenna will be vertical, or extremely close to it, and minor adjustments can be made on site.
BEAUTY, FUNCTION & STRENGTH- Once again KATO is using attractive stainless steel. Each Backstay Antenna Mount main member is 1/8" thick x 1-1/2" wide for structural strength. The outboard end has a hollow 1"-14 threaded antenna mounting stud - typical for AIS, VHF, GPS etc.
EASY TO INSTALL - Just bolt the unit to your backstay using the provided bolts and nylon lock nuts.
