Bend, Ore. - NavPod, manufacturer of high-quality waterproof housings for marine electronics, announced today that its new product line specifically designed for inland fishing boats - PedestalPods - is now shipping. PedestalPods are better than bracket mounting. Very sturdy and secure, yet clean and attractive, this mount provides protection for fishfinder/chartplotters from the harshest of wet boating conditions. PedestalPods gives the convenience of easily reaching and controlling the fishfinder/chartplotter while providing added security with protection from theft.
These new PedestalPods conveniently position displays 20-inches off the deck, located near the bow and at a 45-degree angle for ease of viewing while fishing. This allows anglers to easily reach and access the fishfinder/chartplotter for changes to range, zoom or even to control the trolling motor. Designed to resist impacts, vibration and moisture ingress, PedestalPods are crafted with a thick gauge, UV-stable acrylic capped ABS material and are built specifically with structural rigidity in mind. Built on the proven technology of NavPod's popular range of PowerPods, PedestalPods are also manufactured with a double gasket system that provides an excellent watertight seal to keep spray off electrical connections ensuring the reliability and longevity of marine electronics.
NavPods are now available in pre-cut models compatible with 7-, 9- and 12-inch LCD displays from all major marine electronics manufacturers. Displays are easily installed in the pre-cut face of the NavPod. The heavy duty, powder coated aluminum pedestal tube is 3-inches in diameter with a 5-inch round base and has a large 1.75-inch opening. Providing plenty of room for running and concealing wires internally for a very clean look, PedestalPods give protection for wires and connectors from water intrusion, UV exposure or damage from snagging and ripping connectors out of their sockets.
"We have been so fortunate to have consistently received such positive reviews and testimonials on our NavPod brand over the past twenty years," said Rob Walsh, president and owner, Ocean Equipment. "Now that the PedestalPods are shipping, we are very excited to expand our product line into the inland fishing market and are really looking forward to getting feedback from our new customers and boat owners." NavPod backs up their commitment to quality by offering a 10-year warranty on all Gen3 NavPods. PowerPods can be purchased through a nationwide network of marine electronics dealers, national retailers and wholesale distributors.
