That is why I said:
much lower power generation capacity than a hard polycrystalline panel of the same surface area.
Many boats are going to have trouble finding the space required by a 40 Watt amorphous panel, but might be able to fit a 40 watt polycrystalline panel fairly easily.
A polycrystalline 40 Watt panel is about 26" x 21", where a 40 Watt amorphous silicon panel is going to be about 48" x 21"...almost twice as large.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
