As long as I was sure the panels didn't extend beyond the boat I'd be willing to consider it. In my case, I'm going to mount my 135W panels on top of the bimini, aft of the boom. If I need more power I'll certainly give the idea some thought.

And I agree, those panels are at a perfect theft height. Or hammer height.
