Re: Show Me Your Radar Arch

It's bolted to the deck, BBQ installed, GPS antenna installed, solar panels installed and wired and happily charging the batteries! With some nice shade to boot!

I realize this is an old thread but hey, that's what searching gets ya

Caribesailors - I really like the idea of using the arch to replace the bimini and get it much higher up. No reason you couldn't then use a mid panel to bridge the gap between the dodger and canvas on the arch. We currently have a bimini that connects to the dodger but I like the idea of opening this up more as part of our upcoming arch project. I'm curious if you have any other pictures of your setup and how well you like it after a couple years of use. Does the extra height result in more sun (less shade) or a wetter cockpit for you?
