That looks great ! Only wish my boat could accommodate one of those. My boom is much to low for something like that unfortunately.
Slow and steady. I cut the shape out, bonded on the lip for water catchment and cut the hole for the backstay.Hey Pajo, Any progress on the bimini top?
They are 345w SolarWorld panels I picked up at the local electrician supply in Seattle, Platt Electric. They were definitely not designed for marine use, but are very high quality USA made product. Unfortunately, I think SolarWorld went out of business.Good quality panels for marine use should be pretty much totally sealed with only the output terminals open to the elements (until connected and sealed of course). As such it is not surprising that on being recovered and cleaned the panel worked.
I do not however recommend swimming for solar panels. I feel they are most healthy when basking under the sun above the water.
