Thanks for the ideas guys :thumb:
While doing some work on the boat yesterday, it occurred to me that the panel could be installed in place of a seahood. Definitely not an ideal location, but with 4 adjustable 'legs' the panel can be flat while underway, angled towards the sun while docked/anchored, and the cable only needs a little slack.
Follow-up question: where's a good place to put the charge controller? I'll be installing a Morningstar Duo with a remote display. The Columbia 8.3 has the DC breaker panel mounted in the center, behind the companionway stairs. The 2 batteries are about 6' away, under the port settee. Tucked into the corner between the panel and the settee is the galley stove.
