I'm mocking up how to handle a couple of solar panels
. I'm going to show the setup and explain what I'm seeing and you guys (gals) can tell me what I'm missing.

Here I'm using the Magma grill
table mount. I'm going to extend it w/ stainless steel
but I'm using wood to work easily and cheaply with it. (It's basically scrap teak
to don't get your underwear to tight).

One of my largest issues is that we require an awning in the tropics so I need to get it outside the shadow and the other is since we're a double ender I don't have a square transom to work with.

Because of the curved stern I don't think I'll be able to adjust it much of an angle.

The cardboard is the same size as the panel and has 4 holes in the ends for securing. I don't know if I'll be able to pick up three. Could hold it a little farther away from the boat but will have to see if the SS bar will support it. Also don't want to have it in the way for some fool roaring by in a dinghy
(I might be the fool some night LOL ).

Sorry about the links, I couldn't find how to put the images
in my post.
