PowerPod Precut for Raymarine e7 and e7D
Various Brands of Display Instruments
Designed for the serious boater who is blasting offshore, PowerPods provide a tough and rugged mount to protect vital electronics from the harshest of offshore boating conditions.
Sturdy and secure, yet clean and attractive, PowerPods are better than bracket mounting. A 1.8” opening in the swivel tube provides plenty of room for running wires and connectors through. PowerPods are positioned at a 20-degree tilt-back viewing angle. PowerPods for sail are for mounting on a flat surface, perhaps under the dodger or aft end of the cockpit table, especially on boats with dual wheels.
The Gen3 enhancements now include a thicker gauge acrylic capped ABS material that improves strength and provides better structural rigidity. This thicker material allows for a larger waterproof seal. The better the structural rigidity, the less flexing when tightening and more uniform pressure on the seal. The excellent UV stability of the acrylic is combined with the durability of the ABS. The acrylic cap protects the ABS from UV and its potentially damaging effects on plastic.
All PowerPods are manufactured with a double gasket system providing an excellent watertight seal. This seal provides the best protection of your Marine Electronics. PowerPods are made to withstand the harshest wet offshore boating conditions. Gen3 enhancements include a thicker external silicone gasket with improved flush fit. The internal Poran Microcell Polyurathane gasket is now 50% thicker and is not subject to “compression set” like many rubber compounds. This is important when you need to open the PowerPod in the future in order to service your electronics. The gasket will continue to do its job.
Nickel-Chrome-Plated Stainless Steel
We use all 316 stainless steel hardware that is supplied with each NavPod. Large round head tamperproof screws have deeper sockets for the NavPod wrench for better holding ability when tightening than screws used on our Traditional Series NavPod. For Gen3 NavPods we provide nickel chrome-plated stainless steel tamperproof screws for security combined with a little style!
Commitment to Quality
Navpod stands behind its commitment by offering a ten-year warranty on all new Gen3 NavPods.
