Custom monitor mount and securing system

Bronze eyes and bungee cord that secure vesa monitor mount in the closed position while underway. This is the monitor on forward Salon bulkhead.

Main monitor at chart table.  I fabricated a stainless monitor mount that allows monitor to be used at the chart table, from the helm or allows it to fold up into the overhead out of the way.

The mount that I fabricated is pretty simple. It just uses stainless tubeing of the correct sizes so that one tube will fit inside another to allow it to pivot horizontally and vertically as well as slide from port to starboard.

304 Stainless Steel Round Rod, Unpolished (Mill) Finish, Annealed, AMS 5639/ASTM A276/AMS QQ-S 763/ASTM A276, 0.5″ Diameter, 72″ Length Stainless Steel 304L Seamless Round Tubing, 1″ OD, 0.76″ ID, 0.120″ Wall, 12″ Length Stainless Steel 304L Seamless Round Tubing, 3/4″ OD, 0.51″ ID, 0.120″ Wall, 72″ Length For mounting to the monitor I welded a piece of angle to the tubing and for mounting to the boat I used some flat bar and welded the tube to that. One one end I used 1/2 inch solid bar as a pin for one ind of the tube so that you can take the whole thing apart if needed.
