Electronics placement

I was wondering where some of you mount your electronics, such as depth sounder, so that you can see it when your underway, but yet it isn''t in the way. I have a Mac 26x and was thinking of making a plexiglass box to mount to the steering console, but wanted some other ideas first.

Electronics placement

Traditionally they should be bulkhead mounted or mounted in a console above the companionway hatch so that they can be read from anywhere in the cockpit without having to swivel your head to see them.
