PP4500-06 PowerPod Pre-Cut for Humminbird 859ci/899ci

The PP4500 Series, PowerPods are a better option than bracket mounting. PowerPods provide a clean look of flush mounting with the advantage of a swivel base.

The trunion bracket that is supplied with marine electronics is not optimal. PowerPods have the advantage of protecting the back of the electronics from harsh saltwater spray. Most manufacturers do an excellent job of protecting the face of the display from water intrusion with sealed rubber push buttons. The back is generally not waterproof. They are expecting you to flush mount it into the console or a NavPod. The PowerPod also protects the plastic connectors and wires from deterioration caused by long term exposure to UV.

PowerPods for Sail are great for mounting on a flat surface. Perhaps under the dodger or aft end of the cockpit table especially on boats with dual wheels.

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 provides 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.

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.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.

In Ontario Lakes, Non-Native Bass Impact Native Fish

It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.
