Re: Mounting electronics on a pedestal guard

Mainesail, I can't quite figure out how you got the Starboard part over the verticals of the guard... it just has 1" holes in, right?

Re: Mounting electronics on a pedestal guard

I made a teak mounting board that sits between the pedestal guards, but I only mounted it on one of the upright tubes so I can swing it around and see the display whether I'm sitting aft or forward.

Re: Mounting electronics on a pedestal guard

I looked for a picture of my swing mount but couldn't find one. I originally had one that was mounted around both pedestal tubes, but I sit forward of the steering station quite a bit so I found that I would constantly have to move aft to view the chart plotter. I redid it and mounted it around a single tube. The mount is just narrow enough that it swings between the pedestal guards. I can view it from any place in the cockpit just by swinging it around.
