Mounting an Icom IC756PROIII to a shelf, need help and ideas!

I've got an Icom IC756PROIII that I want to mount to a shelf on board. Ideally by placing screws through the shelf and into the bottom of the radio. But is this possible? Anyone got any solution to this kind of problem? Any product that could help me out?

Well, I have my Icom 746 mounted as follows: put a piece of the rubbery,lacey non-skid stuff (don't know what it is called properly) under the rig, and then strap it down with a bit of one inch webbing secured at the ends to pad eyes or equivilent and closed with a d-ring and velcro. Very easy to set up and to release for removal when required.

This method has proven secure over 27 years of cruising in two different yachts, and includes staying put through a mast-in-the-water knockdown!

Cheers,

Jim

Sorry, mate, but I don't have one in the computer and the boat is in Hobart and I am in California for a while.

Cheers,

Jim
