Re: Mounting Solar Panel

The panels are definitely connected to a dedicated charge controller. When I get a chance I'll see what kind.

Re: Mounting Solar Panel

When I bought my CS36T, the PO had mounted 2 solar panels, one one each side on the railings. They stay folded down, vertical, while sailing, and swing up to horizontal once the anchor's down. Have never had any lines get caught on them.
