Poly-Planar Stereo Weather Enclosures

Hey Dave, Thanks for the rec. That's similar to what we have now (for the stereo that is), but we really want to close off the area above the shelf completely. We kind of need a panel, because we need a place to put some 12v outlets at the nav (there really isn't a good spot), plus we need a place for the stereo, VHF, and possible a Link Lite battery monitor. So when you put all those together, well, that's how we got to adding a panel!

And thanks everyone for the ideas on latches. I really appreciate it!

topsailbeach The Gemini latches work well spray with silicone lube on plunger to stop sticking as they will when not used frequently

Is this thing that you're making going to support the radio or is it just a cover? If it is just a light cover it may be easier just to use Velcro.
It's a panel that will support the VHF, Stereo/CD, and some 12v outlets. I'll have additional space left over to add more later if I want. Of course, I'll still support the larger stereo from the aft end.

The teak is 1/2" marine ply, so it's plenty strong. I think the 304 is fine for interior, but I'm still open to suggestions on how to enclose and keep it as simply (but looking decent) as possible. Here's a pic of a nav station like ours, though it's not our boat. I'm enclosing the space above the shelf, but only about half of it--the half that's over the nav desk.

bljones Cool idea, denise.

deniseO30 It may a bit much advanced to make but a tambor would work nice for an enclosure like that. it's a roll up thingy made of slats.. like you see on big old roll top desks. they can be bought from places like Rockler.com but not in teak i'm sure.

bljones SD, I'd be worried about stainless if it was an exterior app, or an interior app constantly exposed to air. Neither is the case here.

scottyt try looking at jegs, the auto parts place they have a wide selection of quarter turn fasteners, not sure about stainless.

or look at the latch that gemini cats use for the lockers on their boats, you might be able to adapt them. you might even be able to get them from performance sailing direct, so no shipping.

they are shown a few times in this vid
