NAVPOD RAILMOUNT PRECUT SIMRAD GO9 / B&G VULCAN9
RMX4800-13 RailMount Pre-Cut for Simrad GO9/B&G Vulcan 9
RailMount NavPods are best used for mounting of an autopilot control, sailing instrument, or small chartplotter onto an existing pedestal guard. Fits onto any 1″ or 1.25″ diameter tube. A Chromed Stainless Steel arm is used to mount a NavPod. The NavPod can rotate 180 degrees for easy viewing while sitting under the dodger on a rainy day. All wire run 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.
All RailMounts Include:
- Acrylic capped ABS plastic
- Chromed stainless steel tamper-proof fasteners
- Double Seal for watertight integrity
- Models are available pre-cut for popular electronics.
- Chromed stainless steel arm with swivel mount
- Two sets of adaptors included for 1″ or 1.25″ diameter tubing
The Hi-Gloss Material
NavPods are manufactured with a custom co-extruded acrylic capped
ABS material. We use the absolute best UV resistant material that provides a
very high gloss white finish that matches gel-coated fiberglass. The Gen3
enhancements now include a thicker gauge material that improves strength and
1provides for better structural rigidity.
The Waterproof Seal
All NavPods are manufactured with a double gasket system providing
an excellent watertight seal between the front and back of the NavPod for
protection of your Marine Electronics. NavPods are made to withstand the
harshest of wet offshore boating conditions. Gen3 enhancements include a
thicker external silicone gasket with improved flush fit. The internal EPDM
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 NavPod in the
future to service your electronics.
The Nickel Chrome Plated Screws
We use all stainless steel mounting 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 the previous
screws. For Gen3 we provide nickel chrome-plated stainless steel tamperproof
screws for security combined with a little bling!
The Manufacturing Process
Heavy-gauge thermoforming is considered an art since many processes
come into play. It all starts with the design and development of the
tooling. We are fortunate to have experienced in-house design engineers who
utilize CAD programs like Solidworks, Catia and AutoCad. Surfcam is used to
interface with our CNC machining centers to produce quality tools with
precision tolerances. We have re-designed and re-tooled all of the popular
NavPods. We have reviewed all of the former products and selected the best
design elements of each and incorporated them in every new Gen3
Our Commitment to Quality
We are committed to producing the best possible waterproof housing
for Marine Electronics. Now with two decades of experience under our belt,
we are confident you will have years of trouble free service and a long
lasting high gloss finish. We will stand behind our commitment by now
offering a 10-year warranty on all new Gen3 NavPods.
