I have a Yacht Specialities pedestal
with a Binnacle Compass
housing and wish to install a Pedestal
Guard in order to mount a chartplotter
adjacent to my helm
My question is (before I fork out a few hundred dollars). Can anyone confirm whether the 4 mounting holes on an Edson
top plate align up with the same set of holes of my pedestal. Obviously, this is crucial as otherwise I have no other way of securing the guard.
Also, my binnacle attaches to the top of the pedestal by 4 screws that pass through the side of the binnacle and into the side of the pedestal casting. I was wondering if anyone has worked out how to attach this type of binnacle when a top plate is fitted? Or will I have to acquire a replacement binnacle that utilises the 4 mounting holes that I previously refer to?
Any advice from forum members is as always, very much appreciated.
