Solar panel stanchion mount.

Any stanchion mount hold 30-40 W panel.
Could not find one which is simple and easy to set up.

Re: Solar panel stanchion mount.

Are you looking to mount them like this but vertically onto stanchions?

Re: Solar panel stanchion mount.

There are such mounts, & they're not tough to DIY fabricate either. The catch though is boarding waves, literally catching them. Often with unpleasant/expensive things ensuing.
I'd reckon that a lot of marine solar retailers would have them, including, ack, West Marine.

EDIT: Here's a bunch found via a quick search under "solar panel mount" at Defender Defender.com Search Results: solar panel mount

I was looking around that kind of mount but I could found one which adds a rail between stanchions. That looks good for a bigger panel than I want to install. The one with skinny panel looks quite attractive, maybe think about that or smaller panel at side of stern.
