I read about semiflexible panels
, and I am wondering if it would be possible to make the deck
of the boat out of solar panels
. It would be great to have this as it would be possible to move at 1-2knots with solar
The ones I am seeing cost something like $10 per watt (much higher than my current
$2 per watt panels) but would they be durable enough to walk on? Anyone have experience on this?
Does anyone know of a type of panel which could be used for a deck
? Would it be slippery? Could you put a very think layer of glass cloth over it to give better traction and protection (and slightly reduce power output) ?
