On my 2014 trip I had a bit of problem keeping my batteries topped up. While sailing the panels tended to get blocked by the sail. The old setup was 50 watts, I’m adding another 80 watts and I hope that does it because there isn’t much deck space left. 

 The foredeck, 50 watt semi-flexible

  Wire entry through vent truck, still needs paint. I roughed up a 1/2 inch copper 90 fitting, glued it in and faired with epoxy and qcel.

   
 

Stern, 30 watt panel, this one is removable with those special connectors they come with. Fits on top of my doormat. Same routing method through stern baffle.
