Enviornment: Remote location with no interference. There is a building up high that overlooks a body of water, I would say roughly X by X FEET. There is a boat that will move to different places that needs to have connectivity.
Does it make sense to install the LAP‑120 on the high point of the building and beam it over the water? If I did that, would it work if I put on the LBE‑5AC‑Gen2? Also, I can't find a movable mount, what is the easiest way to do this as the boat moves it will need to re-alighn itself with the main unit.
Thoughts on easiest way to manually move it without unmounting and mounting?

Alright I think I figured out a solution that could work (thank you for the tips)
What if I install this unit which overlooks the body of water:
QTY 1 LAP-120 - https://www.ui.com/airmax/liteap-ac/
That will give me a 120 degree coverage of the water.
Then on the boat I will install a base unit with three 120 degree antenna
QTY 3 - AM‑5G16‑120 - https://www.ui.com/airmax/airmax-sector-antenna/
QTY 1 RP‑5AC‑Gen2 - https://www.ui.com/airmax/rocket-prism-ac/
In this scenario is there any advantage in getting the LAP-GPS model? Anything I am missing?
Thanks for all the help!

You'll still need some tech wizardry to reroute your network as you drop the link with one radio and pick it up with another.

Ok so would this setup work:
1. On land overlooking water:
- QTY 1 - LAP-120 - https://www.ui.com/airmax/liteap-ac/
2. On the boat:
- QTY 1 5GHz antenna - AMO-5G13 https://www.ui.com/airmax/airmax-omni-antenna/
- QTY 1 Rocket-M - M5 https://www.ui.com/airmax/rocketm/
For the rocket, do I need 2 antennas? One for chain 0, and one for chain 1?
Anything else I am missing on this?

I still think you should mount a CPE radio like a NanoStation on a pole that you can spin and clamp as you need. Washing the whole bay with 3 giant sectors just seems like wasteful spectrum use to me, so I'd still want to disable the wireless when it's not the active antenna.
