Re: Mounting electronics on a pedestal guard
Check used marine stores (or eBay) for NavPod's that you can modify to fit your unit. In Seattle Second Wave has a selection of them, some cheap, some expensive, and it's often random which is which. I've even seen unused ones cut out for a specific unit.
I like Maine Sail's approach, though it would get messy if it were a unit with more than one cable (my e7D has 3 cables). Those clamps are also $32/ea, so it's a bit cheaper than a cut to fit NavPod, but not hundreds cheaper.
I do wish there were some cheaper options.
