What size radar can feasably be used on a 36' fly bridge. No tower so height is limited. I talked to a guy with a Strike-no tower and they were trying to sell him a 25kw and I know his top can't be over 8-9 ft above the waterline. I'm probably 17-18 feet to the water.

Pat a 4 or 6kw open array would work on your rig . with your hight it will see out to the max limit .

4kw will work great. The newer raders have more capabilities and see threw clutter better than the ones from two or three years ago.

If you can swing it an 4kw open array from Furuno with a furuno Navnet radar is what you want.

Raymarine makes a great product as well and there Dome 4KW and E series display has newer technology which will help you to find birds. Furuno in the one you want if you really want to find birds though.
