Panels on Roof of Pilothouse

I thought I'd share my install in case anyone is considering a similiar situation. The panels are 62x33 each manufactured by Sharp. The rails and clamps are by Sharp as well and are aluminum. The stanchion parts came from a local chandler and were off the shelf. I had them cut the pipe to 5 inches. I added a snap shackle between the traveller and main sheet block so I can swing it to the life line at anchor. I needed to move the panels forward after my initial install to remove risk of chafing against the main sheet on a down wind run. I reorganized the lines at the front of the cabin roof as well to accomidate the panels.
