RMX4808 RailMount Pre-Cut for Simrad NSS8/B&G Zeus T8

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 RailMount NavPods 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
    product.

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.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

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.
