PSC 31 Arch for solar and wind generator

Does anyone have ideas/ photos of an arch on a 31. We would like to mount solar panels and a wind generator on the "Patty Ann" for our winter cruises to the Florida Keys and Bahamas. Boat is now in Daytona Beach.

One issue we have is that our radar is mounted on a custom pole in the starboard aft corner of the vessel. That pole is bolted to the teak cap rail and also clamped to the stern rail corner. I'm sure the designer of the arch can work around that or even move the radar dome unto the arch.

We also want to preserve the port side stern archor pipe and stern anchor roller. I would think that the forward arch legs could fit in front of that anchor pipe and that the aft arch legs could be bolted to the transom because there is not a canoe end on the 31.

We'd like to have any comments and of course photos would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Ed
