Solar array

On our C37 we have an arch off the stern which holds a 130watt panel and our radome on a forward and upward offset.The offset places the radome over the cockpit high enough to avoid radiating ourselves.The arch also serves as an outboard motor hoist with a block and tackle arrangement.The arch is made from marine grade aluminium tubing and weighs approx 50lbs without the solar panel or radome.
