We have a Swan 43 Ron Holland
and are looking to add some new B&G electronics
. Currently there is nothing at the helm
position except the autopilot head
on the port side. The pedestal
guard is fairly small, typical for 80's Swans, and the installer does not carry any ready made pods that would allow the guard to still be used as a grab rail. I have noticed that the MFM's come with their own mounting bracket. Has anyone mounted one of these on a boat and left it exposed it the elements? I realize some sort of theft protection would have to be used. Here is a picture of a sister ship.
