Great idea, but very expensive. I put 815W of conventional panels on the Bimini of our 420. Total cost of conventional panels $2500. The same wattage using the flexible panels you are looking at is over $10,000. More than 4x the cost.

The bimini on our boat is covered in panels. Fitted as many as room would permit. But we have still room to walk on the bimini to get to the sail bag etc. without walking in the panels. And unless you are on the Bimini you can't see them anyway.
