    Mounting Solar Panels to Stainless Tubing - How-gctid801129

    I'm adding some capacity to my solar system and I'm going to add panels to the stainless tubing on my flybridge. Has anyone found a decent yet inexpensive clamping system that holds up well?

    Best I can find is something like this that I'd have to modify to bolt the panel into place.

    Or something like this that bolts to the underside of the panel:

      Here's a setup that might be applicable. These pictures are from the boat next to mine at North Saanich Marina.

      The links or mounts go above the zippers on the enclosure side curtains.

      Seems strong enough and it looks nice. Additionally uses the best spot on the boat and takes some of the weather off the bimini top.

        Terry, take a look at these two:

        The first one is like the plastic one that you showed on your first post, but made from stainless steel.
