B32 & Solar Panel

Has anyone come up with a creative way of placing solar panels on the 32? I would be interested in seeing the arrangement if you have.

This is one possibility. It's taken from the site kestrelboat.com - all kinds of neat mods made on a 32 for a trans-Atlantic and southern return. The site owner can probably fill you in on the details.

B32 solar panel possibilities

As seen in the picture of Sand Dollar, my installation is similar to Kestrel's. I installed aluminum tubes over the life lines and installed a solar panel on each side of the cockpit. With this arrangement at least one (if not both), of the panels is always in full sunshine. With my ketch rig, I support the panels with a nylon string to the mizzen mast's shroud which allows the panels to be tilted. We went with narrow panels since they work best under healing conditons.
