RAM Mounts for Fishfinders and GPS Chartplotters

RAM Mounts are ball-and-socket mounting systems used to mount fishfinders and other devices. They are very useful and help protect your expensive marine electronics from vibration and shock damage.

RAM Mounts are extremely popular with boaters for three main reasons:

  1. The double ball-and-socket system provides great flexibility for positioning your fishfinder in the best possible position and angle
  2. The rubber balls absorb a great deal of vibration and shock, protecting your fishfinder from damage
  3. RAM Mounts are tough, and they hold up well to rough water and rough roads while trailering your boat

RAM Mounts are lightweight, strong and corrosion resistant. RAMs are made of marine-grade aluminum and feature rubber balls and stainless steel hardware, and are covered in a black powder-coat finish. RAM universal ball-and-socket systems hold a great deal of weight in high vibration applications.

RAM Mount base plates come pre-drilled with a variety of hole patterns to fit most applications, but in some cases you might need to drill your own holes. This is not usually required for common bolt configurations used by the major manufacturers.
