    Hi folks,

    I have a Catalina 250 Wing Keel with a knot meter, sounder, and compass on the wheel. I would like to mount a GPS chart plotter either on the Edson or somewhere else. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    I have seen radars displays, and I guess chart plotters as well, on swing out arms in the cabin. Being on a small boat it should be easy to see from the cockpit. If you place in on the pedestal, you might have to remove it if you keep the boat in the water.

    Just a thought.
