Need help finding swing arm mount for radar

I'm considering mounting my radar monitor on a swing arm just inside the hatchway to may visible from the helm. (I rather have it at the helm, which will happen in good time). I've done searches on sailnet and google but can't seem to get the right catch phase to net me any results. Does anyone know of a vendor or brand name?

I've got a small Furino. What I did was to cut an opeining in the bulkhead at the forward end of the cockpit. When in port the Furino is mounted inside the cabin and a poly board fits into some channeling to cover the hole. It looks OK and doesn't leak.
Underway I unplug the monitor, Install it in the cockpit bulknead with a few bolts and replug it in. It works well and I don't have an arm in the way when going below.
