Connect my Lowrance Elite 5 to my Pedestal

Trying to figure out the right mounts needed to connect my chartplotter to the pedestal on my Islander 30.

They might not suit your needs, but I was able to find some excellent mounts in a bicycle shop with brackets to fit my binacle railing that is the same size as a bike frame. You might also look online for some bicycle brackets or racks.

Re: Connect my Lowrance Elite 5 to my Pedestal

I mounted mine using a ball mount bracket that can be purchased for this chartplotter (I got mine from EBay). I screwed the mount to a bit of angle that I then clamped to the grab rail of the pedestal with a U-bolt.
