We also designed something we’ve wanted for a long time — protection from locker knocks. Exposed wires and gauges always get hit by life jackets, sail bags, and other salty items. The damage varies from broken connections to corroded gauges.

The optional shell provides strong protection from all those locker knocks. Installation is a breeze because it fits onto the same stainless hardware provided for the cover installation. The shell is made of ABS plastic with an amply cutout for cables to fit through.
