NavPod AngleGuards are designed to upgrade sailboat steering systems to accommodate mounting of electronics onto NavPods.

Edson is a popular manufacturer of steering systems who has always used a 9.5" wide pedestal guard. Most of their pedestal guards are 1" in diameter. Lewmar (formally Whitlock) also has manufactured steering systems that use the 9.5" wide format. NavPod supplies the SG10 and AG10 as a easy retrofit onto either of these systems.

Because of the clean and secure method of concealing wires and the need to accommodate large connectors and heavy radar cables within the Stainless Steel tubes, NavPod recommends the larger 1.25" diameter AngleGuards. Often the existing Top Plate needs to be bored out or replaced with the TP125 to accommodate the larger diameter. NavPod supplies Polished Stainless Steel feet with all 1.25" AngleGuards.

Watertight Silicone Seal
Keeps rain and salt water spray off electrical connections on the back of electronics

Tamperproof
Special fasteners and wrench are included that provide security and convenience to leave electronics on-board

Concealed Wiring
No loose wires are exposed to corrosion and UV damage

Clean Installation
The clean look of flush mounting. Mount your display where you can best see and reach it.

Pre-Cut Models
Come with a Flush Mount Kit, which includes the specific gasket and mounting hardware for your electronics if not supplied by manufacturer with unit.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

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.
