Canvas covers up some of it. The arch is integrated with the stern pulpit.

We pulled the stern pulpit and the shop modified the stern pulpit and integrated the arch into it. It was delivered to the boat and we mounted it.

Thanks, it is similar to the setup I have seen elsewhere.

Re: PSC 37 Solar array solutions

I have seen pictures of an arch that looks like it is part of the stern railing rather than an add-on. I will try to find the picture, I would like to know if it is a factory option or a custom build.

brokesailor Do you guys remove your solar panels when you winterize your boat? Skalliwag is about to see snow for the first time in a long time. Or do you just cover them up?

teejayevans I hate my Bomar hatches and portlights, I think the quality is poor. The welds break on the portlights and the paint on the hatch is bubbling. I would go with a portlight that didn't have welds (maybe New Found Metals) and not sure about the hatch.

fishtrip pic #3 didn't get attached.... here it is

Solar set-up part 2

1) there is a 1" pipe running fore and aft, those in the picture are 15" long. Also notice the welded tabs for attaching the outboard side of the panels.
2) inboard tabs forward.
3) tabs inboard stern (one on starboard side is partially hidden by the backstay)
4)Last is a pic of orientation to the backstay ( hidden in that plastic pipe).....
Suffice to say.. it's very close.
I realized that I didn't take a photo of the boom end and its proximity to the panels.... but I can tell you they don't overlap.
I hope this helps, I'll be happy to provide more info if you want.

Solar set-up on Cloud Messenger part 1

Grant,
Here are some pictures and hopefully a decent explanation of what you're looking at.
1) pic is an overview of the entire system, hopefully this will allow you to orient the pics to follow.
2) is to show you the attachment points of the "bows". They are the two vertical pieces of pipe and are parallel with the radar pole. The forward bow is attached to the frame of the bimini, the aft bow is attached to the stern rail. Notice the two bracing pieces of pipe too. the forward one stiffens the bimini and the aft brace stiffens the aft bow. Both the port and starboard sides are the same.
3) the radius of the bend
4)Height above the bimini to bottom of horizontal pipe is approx. 6" at center, but because my bimini has a crown to it in the center it is approx 12" measured from the outboard edges of the fabric to the bottom of the pipe. The most important thing is to make sure you make it high enough so you can lay your bimini frame back if you want to, or in your case when you leave the boat. I assume you take the canvas down???
5) good pic of all attachments at the rail. The brace with the rod holder is the one that connects to the stern bow and helps TONS to quiet the squeaking that we encountered before we installed them.
I've reached the limit to the attachments I can send so stand by and I'll send some pics of the attachment points that hold the bows together and attachment points for the panels themselves.
