We wanted tilting panels
from the outset, also i wanted the view outback to be clear and unrestricted.
have 5 positions with draw pins a bit like an outboard engine
tilt pin. I placed the cabling at the forward end so they can go through glands in the cabin
roof. The small stands are diagonally braced and through bolted, the ends of the panels have SS saddles where i'll connect some heavy bungee so if the mainsheet flails it cannot hook on the corners.
All the white is aluminium powder coated the rest in polished 316#. The surprise was the panels being white beneath which saves me from covering, i'll mount a light there for fishing
The flat area's on the sides and between the small towers allowed me to mount gaffs and boathooks/
It's 'work in progress'
as i'm still waiting for cables
to arrive and crimps, just takes longer here!!!!
