I am worried about damage. When I brought my Mahe across the Caribbean
sea we had some big following seas. Because we knew we were going to likely have this kind of sea we removed the dinghy and motor
from the Davits before we left. We also had a pretty rough crossing from Anguilla
to the BVI with 9-10 ft following seas and had left the dinghy and motor
on (but well secured). It actually went very well and we didnt have any problems when we left it on. Just the same if I anticipated a rough go I would likely take at least the motor off and probably the dinghy too. That leads me to worry if I would have to take off the solar
panel too. Probably not and I see lots of people with their solar panels
out like that so it must not be too big an issue. Obviously with a broad beam and big bimini it also seems attractive to put it up there. ??? Just wanted to see if anyone had had issues with your set-up.
