Rail Pods

  • Description

    Seaview offers a solution to the age old problem of figuring out where to mount all your instruments on your sailboat. The Seaview Rail Pod allows you to mount smaller displays and instruments directly to the rail. Allowing you to postion the instrument where it is most optimal for you. Fits onto 1", 1-1/8" or 1-1/4" rails. A single high polished 316 stainless steel clamp is used. Cables are routed internally through the clamp and into the rail. The Rail Pod housing is made from UV protected ABS plastic housing, and sealed with a water tight rubber gasket. Tamper resistant screws are used to hold the housing together. A reinforced base made from King Starboard is added for increased strength and stability (on certain models).

    Stainless Steel Clamps

    Clamp for Seaview Rail Pod

    A single high polished stainless steel clamp is used to secure your Rail POD onto 1", 1.125" and 1.25" (25mm to 32mm) rails. Seaview Rail Pods fit standard 9.5", 12" and non standard guard rails.

    Security screws are used to hold the Rail Pod together. A water tight gasket is used to prevent water from entering inside the pod, while a GORE-TEX ventilation vent lets hot air to escape without letting water in.

  • Optional Accessory Pod

    One of the unique abilities with the Rail Pod is the ability to add optional side pods (part #SP1BOX). Currently no other sailboat pod on the market has this feature. Depending on the pod box size you choose you are able to mount either one to four of these accessory pods. This gives the user lots of flexible solutions to optimize their setup. The SP1BOX is made of UV resistant white ABS plastic and held together with tamper resistant screws and sealed with a rubber gasket.

Rail Pod Review

Rail pod quality is good. However, the clamp for the pedestal guardrail is designed for horizontal rail only

Using with Raymarine Axiom+ 9 -- Tight Fit!!

First, this is a great product that is made using quality material, well designed, and cleanly manufactured.

I used the SP2S1 to mount a Raymarine Axiom+ 9" MFD on the steering pedestal of my sailboat. Users should be cautioned that the Axiom+ is a VERY TIGHT fit in this pod. I don't know if the dimensions are slightly different from the original Axiom, but a couple of hints would make this installation easier. Users should make the cutout for the MFD as high as practical on the cover. An offset to the left might also be worthwhile. The issue is that the 90 degree power cord comes out at about a 45 degree downward angle and is centered on the MFD extending a bit below bottom of the MFD. This means that the inflexible part of the cord runs into both the nuts on the bottom of the pod and the cables coming into the pod from the center. The next larger pod, model SP3S1, might be a better choice allowing for this MFD more easily in the pod.


Always great products design for sailing in mind!
