Re: Homemade navigation housing

I am pondering this myself as i do not want to spend the money on a navpod right now and the idea of a foam block that could be eaten by acetone AKA a lost foam mold seems interesting

On the other hand After spending the time to make the hatch riser out of wood i kind of wish a could have bought one for 2 or 3 hundred as it came out great BUT cost a huge amount of TIME

Re: Homemade navigation housing

We recently mad a chart plotter mount with inch Starboard and it works quite well so far. Of course it is brand new so no telling It is attached with some hose\cable clamps that we removed the rubber from, 7/8 I think. We cut it with a Japanese hand saw and jig saw for the corners then sanded it.
Could be a bit nicer but this works for now.
