Arch for Solar Panels?

I am thinking of building a "Tower of Power" similar to the one in the picture. Boat is in the Caribbean. Should I go to St Martin, Grenada, Trinidad or elsewhere to have it fabricated? Thanks.

Re: Arch for Solar Panels?

Go to St. Davids harbour in Grenada. Dietmar Zuber runs the welding shop there and creates beautiful arch designs. Ours holds two 110W solarpanels and countless sensors and antennas, plus it's the garage for the dinghy.

They make it so that it replaces the aft stanchions etc, completely integrating it into the boat.

ciao!
Nick.
