Go to west marine and get a radar reflector. Like sailboats use.

Put it inside the front and call it a day.

Radar really isn't a good choice if you're basing your findings solely on a radar reading. Too much can affect the turn out. Co-sign effect, other moving objects, power wires, etc. Lydar would be way better but to lock lydar is a mo-fo on a boat. That tech. that they use to regulate speeds in certain offshore classes would be a good way to get consistant readings as well.

Good luck with the runs. Boats awesome.
Got a radar gun you can use and I live 5 miles from the shootout sent pm to Eddie

Go with the foil and also inside the hull at the bow on the radar gun side.
