iPad mount for swiveling out from the cabin?

I want to mount an iPad for speed and navigation info.


I'm thinking mounting it on a gooseneck or swivel coming out of the cabin may be the best route. I wouldn't mind having to swivel it out of the way a bit to get in and out of the cabin.


It's got a tiller, so there's no wheel pulpit to mount it on.



Looking for recommendations for a specific mount, or another way to mount it. I've attached a picture for a reference of what I've got to work with.

I canít rep commend s specific mount but youíll need something that keeps it out of direct sunlight for reading and so it doesnít overheat from the sunlight

Check out RAM mounts. Many different configurations available.

Yep! RAM mounts - Here is one that might work; https://amzn.to/2xVKUT5 but they have tons of options!

BTW, I have a RAM mount and have had it for years!

Another vote for RAM mounts. Had two of them (two ipads) on our previous boat and they were terrific.
