Hi folks. Welcome from New Zealand.
My first subject.
I am looking at fitting my Solar panel and aerials on a arch over the stern , Has anyone had similar thoughts or photos of this, I know it is a small vessel, however at the moment the panel is mounted on the fwd hatch. When my family opens it. Well, I live in mortal fear!!!!!!!
I am tossing up between a solid sleak shaping or a Stainless pipe. Any assistance will be appreciated.

take a look at DAVARSA, nee NATINE

She is a Falcon 24 and the pictures give a good idea of a pipe system

Heres a nice installation I saw on a very pretty Columbia 29 I've been admiring (the Columbia 29 is another S&S design from the sixties. Look at the lovely sheer...look familiar?) Something like this would look ok on a Dolphin, I think.

Thanks guys, awesome. That set up is nice. Side issue, especially the barbaque. I want one of them!!! I must admit being a boat builder my familiar ground is the solid at the moment I think I can do it in such a way not to look like a low flying 747 on the back of the boat. weather permitting I will play with shapes this weekend. be good out there. no doubt photos will follow if done. I have 'Festina Lente'. A paradox, Going fast slowly. The Falcon version or a' Sparky' as that is how they are known out here. Steve
