Seaview Launches New Sail and Deck Pods

Seaview launched new sail and deck pods that they say offer a flexible, sturdy and uniform mounting solution for convenient viewing of navigation electronics. The boxes are sold with either clamps or a rotating base. The current market does not have a sail or deck pod with the ability to add instruments, so Seaview has solved this problem by designing a single instrument box that can be added to any new sail or deck pod, the company said.

Expanding on Seaviews modular mount concept, Seaview has another sail and deck pod design. There will be five box sizes to fit almost any chart plotter or instrument on the market. These will use the same security screws, same GORE-TEX ventilation vent, and a water tight gasket. The only differences will be choosing either an aluminum 350 degree swivel base option or two stainless steel clamps for mounting on a rail.

Seaview has designed these new pods so that the back of each box has a continuous radius that matches up with the stainless steel pod clamps. The result is precise viewing angle during installation for the customer. The sail pods fit the majority of steering pedestals from Jefa, Whitlock and Edson, and can be custom tailored for other systems. The stainless steel clamps will clamp onto 1”, 1 1/8” and 1¼” rails.

A new accessory option is also available to fit either the sail or deck pod. This accessory pod for instruments can be mounted to either side of any pod box, allowing you to add one to four more instruments depending on the main pod box size. The small instrument pod can also be added to the rail by itself using a Seaview stainless steel clamp; this allows the customer the most flexible solutions possible.

Sizing:
Seaview will fit the majority of the chart plotters and instruments out on the market. The sizing is as follows: SP1S (4.63” x 4.63”), SP2S (11.75” x 7”), SP3S (13.75” x 9”), SP4S (16.9” x 12.25”), SP5S (14.75” x 5”), SP2P (11.75” x 7”), SP3P (13.75”x 9”), and SP5P (14.75” x 5”).

Pricing:
Available November 2013, Seaview sail and deck pods can be purchased directly and from authorized Seaview dealers and distributors around the world. The suggested retail price is as follows: SP1S ( $155), SP2S ($280), SP3S ($320), SP4S ($370), SP5S ($260), SP2P ($250), SP3P ($315) and the SP5P ($250). The single accessory pod SP1BOX lists for $85. All Seaview pods are protected by a three-year warranty.
