In the end, he built me an arch that I installed myself for my panels.
Jamie did the canvass for my boat and he is a pretty innovative guy... I note recently he has come up with expansion bars from the top bow to the cockpit coaming which are an improvement over the original designs. Doesn't cost to have a chat with him. (Also make the bucket to catch the main dropping at warp speed down the tides track...neato)

Re: Solar panel mounting hardware for 1-1/4" tubing?

Thanks guys.

I should have started this thread with an image of what I am trying to accomplish.

I really wish Gemini Hinge would made a solution for people with 1-1/4" frames.
