Below are four pictures. The first is the boat with a solid rail at 2 foot. The second is a shot during the installation
of a rail at 3 foot in addition to the original 2 foot high. The third and fourth are a comparisons of the side view.
The big blue thing on the forward deck
is the tubing bender I was using to curve the new railings. I later completed an inner rail at the 3 foot level on the dog house where you can see the solar
array. I don't seem to have any photos of a finished job.
As you can see there is an impact on the looks of the boat but to me the lines still read and the rails follow the lines well enough so that they are not too painful to my eye.
I have more trouble aesthetically with the solar panels
but would not give them up after using them for a year. I installed the solar
to fold out away from the mast
for shadow relief and to lay down flat on the house deck
. I think they look better down.
