WP900 pendular steering pedestal
The WP900 pedestal solution is a solution in creating multiple steering position with minimum space lost in the cockpit. The pedestal can be moved from port to starboard and can be fixed in three positions. A pendular pedestal with a 800 mm wheel can simulate a 2500 mm wheel. The pedestal is completely made of high strength aluminium 6082. Due to this build method, the weight is relatively low with 19 Kgs and the construction is very strong and stiff. To protect the pedestal against the tough environment it’s alochromed (chromate conversion coating) and after that powder coated resulting in an long lasting finish.
The engagement mechanism is easy to operate by a foot pedal to switch pedestal position. The pedal only has to be opened and will click in the next position when reached.
Under deck the pedestal is equipped with a water drain. All the bearings in the central shaft are made of stainless 316 and proper PUR seals are fitted to guarantee no water will enter the boat. Different sprockets can be mounted on the central shaft.
Brake spinner is not included and should be ordered separately.
