What type of panels did you use? Mono or Poly and brand? I was thinking two panels mounted on the aft rails would be a nice use of the space as well. One or two more over a bimini or something would be amazing too. Speaking of which, have you ever seen a dodger or bimini on one of these old Colmbia 29's?

Re: columbia defender hull #60

Here's one I saw on a 29 for sale. When I save my pennies I'm gonna have the local gal make me one of these.
and this video slide show has a good one too.


and for the flush deck/raised deck here is a shot of a Cal 28 with one over the companionway. (hard to see but you can sort of blow it up.)

those are renogy 100 watt mono panels . I also have 2 100 watt grape brand flex panels when I need them I lay them on deck.
Myself no I having but there is no reason not to have a dodger on your 29.
Here is what I found on a quick Google search

Just wish I could figure the dodger for my defender not easy due to winch locations.

The Renogy panels are a lot of bang for the buck I think. I have some on my K5 CUCV overland truck.

Re: columbia defender hull #60

Painting and engine update.

Finally got the paint for the engine and have started that evolution.
Its Detroit green but close enough to volvo green and a third the cost.
