Homemade navigation housing

I have upgraded my Nav GPS at the helm and have finalized the layout but now trying to decide on how to house the unit along with (3) instruments.
Although Navpods are nice but they can be a bit $$$, especially when you need to (2).
I am looking to build housing units for my GPS and (3) instrument heads and only product that I have seen out there is Starboard, which I never worked with.

Any products out there that is resilient to weather and would look nice at the helm or any experience in building housing units?

I am thinking of a basic box unit, attached to the stainless steel tubing guard, round out the edges of housing units, and recess the GPS into the housing. Similar to a typical Navpod unit but less rounded.
