Hope this saves you some money.
I have a Fourwinds, but can't pemanently mount it on my boat.
Here's the shipping quote -

"Hello
Many thanks for the enquiry. The cost to ship panels to the US would be;

1 x 87W = 65
2 x 87W = 90.

It would be your responsibility to pay any duty in the USA.

Because the panels are being shipped outside the EU VAT would not be
payable. Therefore the cost per panel would be 280 each."


And of course the magic words 'Spares for yacht in transit" should get you past US customs without duty too...
