Yeah, "squirrely" is what we, southeast of Lake Charles, use to describe all

I guess this depends on where you sail. Here in SF bay, my wind generator is almost always happy.

I am thinking of a similar mounting on my mizzen.
Wondering how to mount it without interfering with halyards and stays.
I'd be interested to see a picture if you have one.

Re: Mizzen Mount for Wind Generator

FourWinds sold us a mizzen mast mount for our D400. Halyars are ont he aft side of the mast, the wind genny on the front, up highe nough it avoids the stays and shrouds.
