binnacle/crash bar/ what is it called?

Hi All.

For my very first post here I am asking a really dumb question

I've search the web and these forums but still can't seem to find a definitive answer: what is the name of the upside-down U-shaped metal thing that is (on some boats) bolted in front of and to the pedestal? I'd like to install one on my boat but don't even know what to ask for

thanks in advance

Pedestal Guard

Hello,

Vasco wins, it is a pedestal guard.

Edson manufactures many. You can see samples on their web site:

Ocean Marine Systems..

Ocean Marine Systems/NavPod also makes pedestal guards. It is important to know which manufacturer built your pedestal. There are basically three manufacturers with one who is out of business. Yacht Specialties/Meriman who is no longer in business, Edson and Whitlock/Lewmar who are both still in business. A pedestal guard top plate for a Yacht Specialties pedestal will not fit an Edson guard etc..
