Sailboat refit: installing a stainless steel arch for solar panels and dinghy davits #33 1

Special thanks to Anders, who made it possible for us to purchase this arch (and therefore make this video) by giving us his old radar. Without it, we would have had to replace our entire marine electronics setup and would not have had the budget for this refit!

Stuart’s contact details (Arcglow Inox Almerimar):

In this episode, we install a stainless steal arch at the back of Polar Seal. We go through design alternatives, the construction process and finally the installation of the arch.

Our arch support 610 Watts of solar array, a bar for our antennas and davits for our dinghy.
