Hi. I have an Intrigue and I want to put a radar in.
 
Should I go with furuno or raymarine?

A radome or an array? Should I mount it?

8.5'' or 10''?   Do I need it?

Thanks.

I prefer Furuno! Where you plan to boat may help to determine what model. Space on the dash is limited. 10" will be easier to read. Do you need it? Not if you boat in a 500 acre lake! Radome or open array? Open array will most likely be the better ant but it will also be the largest and heaviest. Same answer, where do you plan on boating. Should I mount it? What other option are you considering?

Good point! I boat mostly on a river in Point Pleasant, NJ. Average waves in ocean 2-3'.plan on going out on trips 250mi staying close to shore. if I mount it I guess it would have to have an anchor light. What dome/array would you get for decent visibility? A tad bit of haze.

I believe I would look for the closed dome with 4kw and about 24". The intrigue arch will support it ok. I have a JRC on mine that I do not like. Many people do. My past experience is with a 64 mile Furuno that would cost about ten times as much as the JRC and I guess I was spoiled with it's ability. Probably not a fair comparison. Yet at the same time it is not imposible to spend a million bucks on a radar. (Military) What this may tell you is to get all you can afford. However, spending the money is only the start as knowing how to use it is most important. I once attended a class in NYC that was designed for the professional mariner in using the radar on ocean going ships. The class originally was designed to cover several weeks of daily classes to teach only radar. It had been reduced to just a couple of weeks and the instructors felt they were not accomplishing there jobs properly. Yet we as recrecational boaters expect the radars we buy to keep us out of trouble almost immediatley.

I see you are getting many responses on another forum asking the same questions and many of the answers you will recieve there will be of help. Good Luck.
