Default Navnet 1 housing/mounting question

We are updating our boat with yes a navnet 1, it was in our price range so SHUT UP
Just kidding..
Question:
We have a flat helm.. the entire thing so flush mounting would be out unless we build up the helm area and build a fiberglass box for the unit to sit in. We are
in a high traffic area ( marina with charter boats) lots of bums and random people walking around so we want the unit secure somehow. I know if they want it they will take it but if it looks harder than its worth just to snatch and grab well they might move on to the next boat.

What other mounting options are out there. I have seen the enclosed "white" mounts that the smaller furuno systems fit in. They are almost like a stand that can be mounted over head or on the helm, and they have a lid that shuts. Do they make these for 10in units or just for the smaller units.

Would we be better off just building a fiberglass box and mount it in there with a closing front?

Looking for the easy way our with some type of mount, but if we gotta glass we will.
Thanks
Jon
