    the Garmin dome is very light weight, that old KVH was 50+ pounds I know because I swapped while dangling 17ft in the air off a ladder dodging wakes at the marina while the neighbors sat and watched the show. The mount is rock solid its aluminum and handles rough water perfect it never flinches. I don't know the specs or brand on the mount but I'm sure it wasn't cheap. Its bolted solidly to the arch and 14 years later there is no signs of issues.

    John great thanks four your reply.

    Looked to the specs and your radar is 17 pounds and sat is 30 pounds and mount should be around 17 pounds I guess, total of 64 pounds / 29 kg.

    Haha DAMHIK that show, try it doing in 1+ meter waves disassembling the radar, sat and mount.

    My radar is 8 kg, sat 13,5 kg and custom made SS mount is 13,5 kg total of 35-36 kg. Firstly I dissembled the factory fitted Ray dome and put the ss mount over the aluminium mount and had no problem until I had my one man show returning from our wonderful 530 nm/14days Greece trip :smt021. While bumping to the head seas on plane the factory aluminium part broke and mount fell down to the aft bimini, had to cut the cables to remove them (long story short).

    Then I directly put the mount to the arch by drilling new suitable holes to the mount and put 4cm x 4cm thick ss backing plates inside(under) the arch and until now I have no problem.

    BUT there is some doubt in my mind that will my arch handle the 35-36kgs and some day eventually crack and fell down the mount again, or 30kg is the safe limit and should I buy an aluminium mount to lower the weight ?

    What do you think ?

    TIA

    WOW those are some stats! Yeah when it comes to the Arch I agree when you hang any decent amount of weight on there it will crack some where at some point. We just need to be diligent and reinforce it as good as possible and hope for the best.

    Hi All, have had our 360 since July she is awesome. A couple questions does anyone have the part number for the vent window gasket ? It isnt listed as such in the parts manual or I missed it. Second I wanted to have the cord replaced on my Raymarine VHF like many have posted here removed the handset holder but the wires run into the dash is there an easy way to get to the head unit to unplug the handset to send out? Have greatly enjoyed reading through the thread and have learned much.
    Thanks
    Bruce

    The vent window seal (rectangle in shape) is part # 41100061. Ordered from Skipper Buds last year for $132.

    3 months here! Target launch day is 4/15. With the 60 deg weather this week, it's not helping the wait any!

    Also, if you're interested, the Windshield seal, (the seal that goes around the outside perimeter of the windshield, in the channel (black in color)) is part # 8349040 @4.60/ft. Ordered from Skipper Buds as well. Very easy to install.

    Previous owner of my boat put able LED lights in the cockpit and arch. I'm having a hard time finding replacements. Any ideas? Amazon lists some but they look totally different from what I have.

    Also thinking of putting LEDs in the cabin. Has anyone done that, and what bulb did you use?

    Thanks!

    I think it's time replace my 2 cabin TV's. I'm not sure what type of mount I want to use. I'm unsure about using a home type articulating mount....but open to ideas.

    For LED's I have been using Apex lighting, they aren't advertised the cheapest but I have found that if I call they give a 10-15% discount just for asking. The quality is excellent I have used their lights for 3 seasons now and am still impressed.

    Anyone have any good suggestions for a charcoal grill and best place to mount it on my 360 Sundancer?

    For my forward TV, I made a filler panel, painted it flat black, and attached my flat screen to the panel. It hinges from the top, and i put magnetic push releases on the bottom to hold it closed. I also cut a notch in the bottom for my Apple TV. To me, you can't tell it didn't come from the factory that way! (I'm a little partial, of course). Below is the only picture I have of it. It's before it was painted, the TV installed, and the lower magnetic catches installed behind the panel.

    Hi Mike,

    We we have tried quite a few and Magma is the BEST quality one out there. I put the mount on my swim platform under the lid for the ladder so we don't have to look at it or trip over it. This one isnt ours but its close. I'll find a few pics and post them, but you get the idea from this one, its just under the lid so its out of sight

    Thanks for the info and pic. The grill is my wife's main focus since I purchased the boat. Now I can show her what to look for. If the survey comes back good next Friday I'm sure she will be buying the grill that weekend
