I originally wanted to put them on my bimini, but didn't have the realestate. I ended up having a fabricator make some 1" stainless bars that I bolted on between the pushpit and the first stanchion post and then hung one on each side, kind of like cockpit lee-cloths. When I'm anchored or sailing, I'll wing them out. It kept the weight lower and kept the cost down for mounting them, as an arch or something like that was more then I wanted to spend. A longer run of wires means bigger wires too, so the cost kept going up the further and higher you mount them. It is not a perfect installation, but I think it will be good enough.
