Here is a 20w solar panel and mount that I just made up. The panel itself is very strong, so I just added the bracket and mount. It turned out very stable and strong. I even leave it mounted when trailering. I've even sold a couple.

I presume this would not work as is, but would if I were to coat them with epoxy? I have also heard that home stores also carry a similar version made of vinyl, in like a 1x3? I presume this would work as is, as it would be similar to starboard.
