RailMount Precut for 9" Raymarine aSeries Multifunction Displays
Best used for mounting of an autopilot control, sailing instrument, or small chartplotter onto an existing pedestal guard, NavPod's RailMount fits onto any 1” or 1.25” diameter tube. With a RailMount, the NavPod can rotate 180° for easy viewing while sitting under the dodger on a rainy day. All wiring runs from the NavPod down the center of the stainless steel arm and into the pedestal guard. This application provides a clean and sturdy installation for electronics, without replacement of the pedestal guard.
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 acrylic's excellent UV stability combines with ABS's durability to protect the ABS from UV and its potentially damaging effects on plastic.
All RailMount NavPods are manufactured with a double-gasket system, providing an excellent watertight seal. This seal provides the best protection of your marine electronics. Gen3 enhancements include a thicker external silicone gasket with improved flush fit. The internal PORON® Microcell Polyurethane gasket is now 50% thicker and is not subject to compression set like many rubber compounds, so when you need to open the NavPod to service your electronics, the gasket will continue to do its job.
Nickel-Chrome-Plated Stainless Steel
NavPod uses all 316 stainless steel hardware, supplied with each Gen3 NavPod. Large, tamperproof round-head screws have deeper sockets that allow the NavPod wrench a better grip when tightening than screws used on the Traditional Series NavPod.
