I didn't like my instruments mounted in the front cockpit combings but when I got a quote for the pods that mount on top of the companionway (very hard to find) I gaspped , over $400.00
So I decided I could make one myself.
$8.0 for a sheet of PS insulation at HD (for the mold)
$45 West system epoxy and glass mat, fillers ( est, I already had this stuff)
$4 worth of rudder gloves
$10 assorted other stuff
many hours laying up, sanding, filling, sanding,filling, sanding and finally painting and here it is.
Instuments not included.
My crew loves it as I don't yell at them to get out of my sight line and they couldn't tell I made it myself.
