    Can anyone tell me how to remove the radar display on my boat? The install manual references a flush mount flange, that has four screw accessible from the front. This install does not have any screws visible from the front. It doesn't look like Sea Ray used the factory flange? How would I access this from the rear?

    Furuno is most likely no a factory install. You might try prying gently, it might just caulked in place.

    It's factory, but I hear you. I just can't believe they would just caulk it in place...

    Take the panel off at the dash where the electronics are and look behind the radar. It's possible there are hand screws on both sides. From my recollection that's how my Raytheon was secured.

    Yes, Raytheon gear was through-bolted from behind. I freed them by reaching behind the switch panel and through the hole for the aux VHF speaker and cupholders.
