I hopefully will have a new boat after survey and sea trials next week to replace my Cheoy Lee tragically lost down the islands in Hurricane Irma.
As you can see my avatar shows the last hardtop I built on the Cheoy lee to carry my 1kw of solar panels.
The new boat has a pretty good 15ft long bimini / screens etc. However no where to put solar panels.
Around 18 months ago I came across a site on line that sold all the parts to manufacture your own hardtop frame (not w,elded) all in aluminium up to 3" diameter tube I recall. Everything from bases, to90's , slow bends, inside plugs to join tube as well as outside collars etc. They also had tube etc all at reasonable prices etc.
Now the tragic bit after days of trawling the internet , no way can I find this site again. I will now need to make a frame over the bimini to carry the new solar panels when I take over the boat etc.
Anyone ever come across a site like this? These were high end anodised fittings and tube etc. Not Hollander industrial fittings etc.
