Default GPS antenna location

Is this a sailboat? I assumed powerboat with an electronics mast. If
it is sail, get it low and clear (as all the other posters suggested).
If power and you only have the mast space then separate as far apart
and I prefer BELOW the beam of the radar. I have 3 on my hardtop, all
mounted within 24" of an open array 4KW but all just below the beam. No
SNR issues at all.

I have been getting conflicting advice about relative position in
regard to my radar dome. Both will be mounted on my mast about 12 to
24 inches apart. I have a choice of having the GPS right below the
bottom of the dome or I could put an extension and have it extend a
few inches above the dome. Any advice?
