We also removed everything from the top of the Pilot House, moved the Name Boards, trying to reduce as much as possible the "shadows" on the new Solara Panels. Kirby our painter to a great job customizing the Non Skid pattern to outline the panels. I think it is very slick looking installation. The Solara panels are textured and designed to be "walk on" panels, no wires visible, light weight, no mounting brackets etc.
Shiva is a master with sealant, we just glued the panels in place.
Very good skill sets in Trinidad, these guys will build you a complete boat from scratch, just bring them your plans.
