NavPod Announces PowerPanel Stanchion Kits

Bend, Ore. NavPod, manufacturer of high-quality waterproof housings for marine electronics, announced today the release of the new PowerPanel Stanchion kits. Designed to mount electronics where an overhead box does not exist, the stainless steel PowerPanel Stanchion kits allow boaters to customize helms for their specific boating style.

A very strong, sturdy and secure mount for electronics for overhead spaces, PowerPanel Stanchion kits are available in three sizes for complete customization of a helm station. The kits are compatible with the NavPod line-up of the over 200-pre-cut SystemPods. Designed to accommodate virtually all devices from the most popular brands of marine electronics, pre-cut models are available for specific radar, chartplotters and fishfinders, with room for multiple pieces of equipment in a single NavPod.

“The idea for our PowerPanel Stanchion kits came to life when quite a few of our customers approached us for a way to mount electronics overhead,” said Rob Walsh, president and owner, Ocean Equipment. “Our goal is to meet the needs of active boaters. We designed the PowerPanel Stanchion kits to help our customers mount our NavPods in critical areas where they are needed most.”

Built from 1.25-inch polished stainless steel tubes, the kits are pre-drilled to easily attach to the back of a NavPod. Mounted with a cast stainless steel round base, the units are screwed into any solid fiberglass surface overhead. The kits position displays at a 40 degree angle off the vertical axis.

PowerPanel Stanchion kits are in stock and available from NavPod’s network of wholesale distributors and dealers. For more information on the PowerPanel Stanchion kits, NavPod or its full product line, please visit
