Wow, 14x360W solar panels is a lot of surface area!

From a guy with a boat that got caught in Dorian and had his two big solar panels blown off the mounts, how will you be sure the solar will withstand possible very high wind loads?

Granted, mine were probably not mounted as securely as they should have been, and if I was close to the boat I would probably have removed them and stored them inside the boat, but just wondering how y’all plan to mount your solar.
