George,

I think the best bet would be to have it welded to the gallows. I've also seen sleeves for connecting tube to tube in a "T" form, but I have spent the last 20 minutes on Google and can't find anything that adapts at the same time.

If your gallows is bronze and they wouldn't be able to weld stainless to it, perhaps a sleeve could be made?

Also, check out the way Don and Lana Montgomery mounted their panels. Seems to be a sturdy and quality design!

Best!

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
