Scanpod products consist of deck pods, helm pods and instrument mast pods that are compatible with popular chart plotters from 8 inches and standard and maxi instruments. They replace, expand and improve the previous range of pods, according to Adam Ramsden, Scanstrut’s head of international sales. The design features a saddle and U-bolt system that is lightweight, versatile and easy to fit, he says.

Fabricated from UV-stable, acrylic-capped ABS with a double-layer laminated front, the pods are stiffer and stronger yet lighter, Ramsden says. Helm pods start at $439, deck pods at $499 (helm and deck precut models for Raymarine widescreens are also available), and instrument pods at $299 (helm- or mast-mounted).
