I am having a new boat built and I need to mount a radar arch and rocket launchers if I decide to go with a raft on the roof what is the best way to accomplish this? Do you consider your roof raft a replacement for an auto inflate type? How high does the arch need to be to fit a raft under it. I am having a 26' Wooldridge pilot house built and I am trying to get all this stuff figured out. I don't live in AK but I am designing the boat for fishing SE AK for when I retire in 10 years I plan to summer out in SE AK. If you have any pictures that show what you did please post them here.
The walk around on the boat I am building is not that wide so I am wondering how is the best way to get the raft on and off especially on the water? I am thinking it would be easiest to get it off from the aft of the cabin but with the rocket launchers there it might be tough. If I make the radar arch in the front high enough I guess it could come out over the bow??
