Re: Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

Hi,

I thought I would update this thread with the install I did. I ended up breaking down and getting a pedestal guard. I found a great price so it wasn't too bad. It has also allowed me to mount a bunch of things I wanted to.

In truth it really makes sense to go with the guard as now it makes getting around the cockpit much easier and safer.

Here is a picture of the finished install. I have a mount for the gps, radio, and cupholder/airhorn.

Regards,

Re: Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

egads, now that is a seriously minimal pedestal.

You might need to screw something to the front and build a mount off it. If so it will be used as a hand hold so make sure it's robust.

Depending on handiness you can take strap aluminum (1 inch wide, 3/6 thick) and bend it around a plywood semi circle - fasten it to the pedestal bottom on those two bolt heads - make your own pedestal guard. Near the top you'll need to tie it in to the pedestal with screws or it won't hold up.

Hi,

Thanks, I will take a look and see if they have anything that I can use.

I've attached a photo of the pedestal as well.

Re: Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

A picture of the pedestal would help, but take a good look through what Ram has for mounts: RAM Mounting Systems, Inc.
I'm sure you can work something up from the many options they have.

On the other hand, if you are handy you may be able to work up your own pedestal guard. They come in handy to keep visitor's hands away from grabbing your newly Ram mounted GPS and ripping it off when an errant gust sends them sprawling.

They are also nice places to mount drink holders, hand held horns, vhf's and of course plotters

Re: Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

Hi,

I've got the later version, built in 1991 which I believe is the last year they were built.

I will be sailing in the Lake Huron/North Channel/Georgian Bay area so having a chart plotter is a good idea.

The chart plotter on my previous boat was mounted on the cockpit coaming and I found it was a bit hard to see and operate. It certainly is an option to mount it on the starboard side but having it near the wheel would be ideal.

I would love to find a bracket or something that I could attach to the pedestal and then just use the mount that came with the chart plotter.

Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

Which Pearson 27 do you have? They made two models in the 80's. I have the earlier Pearson 27 Triton that they made from '84-'85. They switched to another 27 design after that for a few years with a more spacious V-berth/setee design. Mine does not have a pedestal guard either. Like you, I decided it was too expensive and would take up valuable cockpit space in an already small area. Also as an inland lake sailor a chart plotter is unnecessary.

Maybe you could mount it on the starboard cockpit coaming. If it is the same model as mine that area is a blank space. My instruments are mounted on the port coaming.

Pearson 27 - Standard Horizon 190i Mounting

Hi Folks,

I am looking for some advice as to how to mount a chart plotter on a Pearson 27.

I've recently purchased both the boat and a new Standard Horizon 190i chart plotter.

I would like to mount it on the Edson pedestal behind the compass and wheel but the problem is that I don't have a pedestal guard. I've looked at installing a pedestal guard but that will run more then the cost of the chart plotter itself.

Does anyone have any experience with mounting electronics directly to the pedestal? Any mounting hardware suggestions or websites? Is it a bad idea?

Thanks in advance.

W
