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.

I would enjoy to see pictures of your installation. You can post it on the site or them directly to my e-mail address sylmass7atgmaildotcom

Thanks, Syl

Look! Here's one! Lets steal it!



First lets pluck the stretchy cord bit!






Now you un-twiddle the bitty-bits



Now I put it into my dinghy and take it back to my boat!!
Anyone know specifically which rail mounts that solar panel is attached with? I'm looking for 7/8" rail mounts that can easily be taken on and off.

Thanks,
Pete

Those maybe custom rail mounts, because I have not found them either.
