NavPod, manufacturer of waterproof housings for marine electronics, has released a new product line specifically designed for bass boats – PedestalPods.
Giving anglers the convenience of fishfinders and chartplotters within easy reach, PedestalPods also provide added protection for electronics and security from theft.
The new housings 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, PedestalPods are crafted with a thick gauge, UV-stable acrylic capped ABS material and are made 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 a watertight seal to keep spray off electrical connections, ensuring the reliability and longevity of marine electronics.
Displays are easily installed in the pre-cut face of the NavPod. The heavy duty, powder coated aluminum pedestal tube is three inches in diameter with a five 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 gives protection for wires and connectors from water intrusion, UV exposure or damage from snagging and ripping connectors out of their sockets.
“Our PowerPods are surging in popularity and are being used to protect marine electronics in all types of boats,” said Rob Walsh, President and Owner, Ocean Equipment. “Bass and walleye anglers want their electronics where they fish, often in the bow of the boat and away from the helm. Now these displays can receive the same, bullet-proof protection offered by our full line of next-generation PowerPods. PedestalPods offer convenience of location, protection from the elements and security from theft.”
NavPods are available in pre-cut models compatible with 7-, 9- and 12-inch LCD displays from all major marine electronic manufacturers. The company backs up its commitment to quality by offering a 10-year warranty on all Gen3 NavPods.
