Solar panel A frame adjustable mounts

Featured Posts

I'm about to fit solar onto my boat but can't find a supplier for those A shaped mounts that hold the panel centrally and allow it to be tilted either way. Can anyone give me any links?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you kind person. 

No problem. They do seem a bit pricey though. There was a seller on ebay that listed them, but I can't currently see any listings.

Depends how big your panels are going to be, but if big, flat is probably better than adjustable.  Mine are 220W each and flat is fine.

I've ordered a 200w panel and I'm going to fit it flat - 60odd quid for brackets is way too expensive for me.

Unless you are going to be around to keep moving the panels to face the sun, tilting them is likely to be counterproductive. In the height of summer, the morning sun is more than 180 degrees from the evening sun. These tilting mechanisms will allow you to align the panels at the best angle but only vertically. Unless they follow the sun (prohibitively expensive), or unless you are able to maneuver your boat to the correct alignment throughout the day (unlikely), at some point they will be shielding themselves from the sun.
