The Solor Panels Are Mounted

22 June 2008 | Deaton Yachts
Keith, plenty of sun
I managed to pull this picture off of Matt's internet site. Those are the two kiocera 135 watt panels. Their weight is why we needed to reinforce the bimini with four stainless steel tubes and associated brackets and hardware (including having two stainless steel plates fabricated). Between the support bars and the panels themselves, the bimini is now extremely sturdy. Presently we are in the wiring phase. Unfortunately, the wire they sent with the package was completely inadequate and we are awaiting the shipment of new wire (I think I've written all of this already). We are three weeks into the refit and it is looking that a full month will be necessary to get Tropical Dreamer ready to splash. Then I can tackle the next set of challenges, whatever they may be. I've gotten used to Matt's keen ability to problem solve and will need to handle what comes on my own. His work on this refit is greatly appreciated.
