Re: Hardtop for Amel 54
We ended up scrapping our season in the Med. They wouldn’t let us in anyway, since we are doing so great in the US. The new strategy is, stop looking and the problem will go away. It would be great if boats worked the same way.
Looking forward to your input. If you have been able to fit 1200 Watts on the cockpit cover, that is great. Can you share the manufacturer and model number of the panels you used? Hi to Penny from both of us.

Hope you and Aty are doing OK. Not being able to sail freely is a big down for our system.
Today I found the local company here in Le Marin, Martinique who have made a hardtop for a 54. Due to holidays I will not talk to them until next Wednesday. If they have a good mold I would want them to increase the height by a few inches. I will let you know next week after I see them. My Bimini solar panels are 12v 100amp. These are being tested next week after the acid stuff was spilt all over them last year in Tunisia. I will let you know also about these next week.
I am now going ahead with the Lithium batteries with Olivers (Amel 54 Vela Nautica II)
help. With this virus thing I think we will be here for this year.
