Thanks for the info. I plan to talk with eMarine once the arch is on and I have an idea of the space I can use. They come highly recommended by several people. I did not know about the warranty and will ask. But, I have found if something breaks in the middle of nowhere (which is where it is bound to break) the warranty is useless anyway. Usually the shipping to return the item to the manufacturer for diagnosis and/or repair is often cost prohibitive verses just buying a replacement item.
With best regards,

LG makes a panel that has similar efficiency specifications, and price as the Panasonic N330, slightly smaller in physical size, and hence output. If you squeezed for space it might be an option.
Both LG and Panasonic (and many others!) specifically exclude marine installations from their warranty coverage. It would be worth a conversation with the retail dealer about that, especially if they are selling specifically to the marine market. A dealer warranty wouldn’t be as reliable as one from the manufacturer, but it might be better than nothing if you have a problem.
