    Anyone know of some good sources of inexpensive brackets that would be
    adaptable to marine electronics gear (eqpt that there isn't a mfr to go to
    for these items)?

    Not very classy, but some of my frugal (not me) customers have used common
    "Stanley" brand "L" brackets, packs of two, in a couple of sizes from any
    hardware or general store.

  3. Can't picture exactly what you are looking for, but I've made brackets out
    of aluminum stock.
    I've also made a rack (more like a big hook ) for my binoculars by
    saturating some 3/16 braided line in epoxy and forming it to shape before
    curing.
    Again, not sure what you need, but West Marine carries the RAM swivel mounts
    for electronics..

    OK. Thanks for the thoughts, guys.

    I think the L brackets are what I'll be going with. The only concern I have
    about using them is the quick rust factor in salt environment. But, the
    obvious thing to do there is simply replace 'em often. They're cheap.
     
  5. Make your brackets out of Aluminum - it rarely rusts :)
