I have purchased a 90 watt solar
panel, which is about 20" x 40" and I think feels like it weighs about 20-30lbs.
My question is: Is my current bimini
framework strong enough to support it and some extra bars I need to install.
framework consists of a large semi-loop that goes from Port to Starboard and is connected to the deck
at both ends with the usual item that has two screws to the deck
, and a horizontal screw that goes through the connector on the end of the tube.
About two thirds up the semi-loop another semi-loop is connected with tube end caps. i.e. from the side, the whole thing looks like a Y with one side of the Y starting at the deck level, and going over to the other side. The other bit of the Y is connected to the first tube. 1" diameter tubing.
Another question, how do you post photos to this forum ?!!!
