Arch Installed!

Thought I'd just post a few pics of my new arch that finally got installed today. Custom welded by Dan at Sailcraft Services. The welds are so clean, not even noticeable. 3 Kyocera 140W panels mounted into the arch with two 5/32 backstays for extra support.

Here are a few mediocre pics:







I still have to mount some block and tackle for the dinghy lift.

A few more pics for Orchidius:

The feet aren't completely bolted in yet but this is how it sits:





The photos may look a bit skewed, but the backstays need to be tuned and panels need to be centered.
