Enclosure for electronics

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anybody have their electronics in some sort of "encloser".  I was wanting to build something that kept my fish finder/GPS out of the sun and elements.  It  would be easier to read on sunny days too.  Wondering what some of you guys have done.   I was even thinking of getting the right size cooler and putting on its side and mounting the electronics right through the side.  Something like this is what I saw another guy has.   Looks like he mounted his inside the glove box of the boat.

Buy some Starboard and make what you want. Easy to work with using standard wood working tools.

I have made electronics mounts, fender holders and several other items using it. Its not the cheapest material but perfect for the job.

Comes in white, black, grey and maybe some other colors too.

Ill post some pics when I get a chance.

That sounds about the best way.  I'll look into that.
Another material to use is cellular PVC, it's similar to starboard but way less cost. You can get in board sizes. The 5/4 is a good thickness. CertainTeed and Azek are 2 manufactures

    • Buying new electronics need help

      I'm in the market for new electronics. I recently just purchased a Humminbird Helix 10 to mount to the bow of my boat. Now I'm looking to put a Humminbird on the dash. Had my heart set on a Humminbird 10 in with Si. My question is, is the side imagining worth the extra coin or is just down imagining good enough. I know for salmon and trout the answer is probably not , but I'm looking for Walleye and other species. Thanks for help in advance!
