Re: I Need Ideas

How about this approach. here's what we did on Haleakula

Radar Pole on the stern with all you antennae/ stern light on a hoop , radar, engine hoist incorporated. It also can serve as a detachable engine hoist ( Check out the Garhauer System. You could also incorporate a wind generator on top of the radar.

For the solar a set of Garhauer davits on the stern keeps the windage down and the panels unshaded . You have the added advantage of having the davit usage when in port and not passage making.

None of this affects the traveler or the aesthetic lines of the fine looking boat.
