The Seaview Sail Pod, also known as SPOD is a instrument pod for sailboats and catamarans. Expanding on Seaviews modular mount concept, Seaview has developed a sailboat pod design with a similar concept. There are five different box sizes to fit almost any chart plotter or instrument on the market. Made from UV resistant white ABS plastic and sealed with a rubber gasket. Seaview has designed the SPOD 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 pod fits the majority of steering pedestals from Jefa, Whitlock and Edson, and can be custom tailored for other systems.
The SPOD has a wide mounting angle, allowing for precise viewing. Angle is set during installation.
Two high polished stainless steel clamps are used to secure your SPOD onto 1", 1.125" and 1.25" (25mm to 32mm) rails. the SPOD fits standard 9.5", 12" and non standard guard rails.
Security screws are used to hold the SPOD together. A water tight gasket is used to prevent water from entering inside the pod, while a GORE-TEX ventilation vent lets hot air to escape without letting water in.
One of the unique abilities with this SPOD is the ability to add optional side pods (part #SP1BOX). Currently no other sailboat pod on the market has this feature. Depending on the pod box size you choose you are able to mount either one to four of these accessory pods. This gives the user lots of flexible solutions to optimize their setup. The SP1BOX is made of UV resistant white ABS plastic and held together with tamper resistant screws and sealed with a rubber gasket.
