UNIVERSAL SONAR MOUNT

BOW-STERN

BOW-STERN

The Bow-Stern Mount is USM's specialty mount, sharing the same platform as the Hightower. Similarly, this model is recommended for systems with Z-Pole lengths up to 10', bearing loads up to 150lbs.

Just like the  Compact, Megatower, and XL, the Bow-Stern uses a vertical lead-screw mechanism called the Shear Block Tower to engage and disengage the Z-Pole, also serving as a breakaway safety feature in the event of a collision.
