Steer Stand Guard supports
14 April 2012 | Vineland
The steering stand guard on the Whitby is short, 13 ½ inches wide and a standard NavPod will not fit. I had Klacko bend a 10 ft length of 1 inch tubing in half and standard 12 inch wide to fix and 12 inch NavPod. The old guard and supports were removed. I installed the old guard top supports on the new guard but reversed them so the long tang is fitted on the forward side of the steering stand and the short tang is on the side of the steering stand. I put a piece of teak to fill in between the short tang and the side of steering stand and cut out two small section on the aluminum back plate so it would clear the long tang on the forward side. I installed two 1 inch diameter bases on the cockpit floor to support the bottom of the guard. A hole was drill through the bottom of the base and floor so instrument wiring could be run to the NavPod.
