Chart Plotter antenna rail mounting kit?

I have now bought the Standard Horizon CP180, with external antenna.

The antenna comes with a mount for a flat surface. The base can be removed to mount flush, or there is a 1" / 14 TPI thread, see photo.

Can anyone suggest where I can get a rail mounting kit for the pushpit?

BigNige—

Any marine chandlery will have an rail mount for that. It is a standard antenna mount.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

West Marine has a number of options available from $14.95 - $69.95. They are pretty easy to find.

This is the right tool for the right job all right, but watch out for a particularly nasty problem with them. The cable, usually a coax of some sort, exits the antenna and gets threaded into and through the mount. You've got to be EXTREMELY careful to allow the coax to rotate as you screw the antenna to the base or you'll have a major, major problem. You can and probably will twist the cable right out of the antenna. It makes very little difference what the device is, either, the Raymarine R120 GPS antenna is a good example, as is most any antenna with an integral coax exiting the botom of it.
