SailPods are the smart solution for mounting your radar or chartplotter at the helm, where you can easily operate and clearly see the fine details of the screen. NavPods have a high-gloss finish, giving you a clean mounting solution while concealing unsightly wires. Nickel-chrome-plated tamper-proof screws provide a little bling and a lot of security. Designed with a double gasket waterproof seal, NavPods protect your electronics from the harshest of wet offshore boating conditions. A SailPod is best mounted on a Single Bend AngleGuard or use a Double Bend AngleGuard to fit an InstrumentPod on the top vertical section and SailPod below on the angled section.
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 SailPods are manufactured with a double-gasket system, providing an excellent watertight seal. This seal provides the best protection of your marine electronics. SailPods are made to withstand the harshest, wettest offshore boating conditions. 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. This is important when you need to open the SailPod in the future in order to service your electronics; the gasket will continue to do its job.
Nickel-chrome-plated Stainless Steel
NavPod uses all 316 stainless steel hardware that is supplied with each NavPod. Large round-head, tamper-proof screws have deeper sockets for better holding ability when tightening than screws used on the Traditional Series NavPod. Gen3 NavPods include nickel-chrome-plated stainless steel tamper-proof screws for security combined with a little style!
Commitment to Quality: NavPod stands behind their products by offering a 10-year warranty on all new Gen3 NavPods.
