arch...430....wind generator

hi guys....I have been building a new arch for the back of my 430. it will be for solar panels, wind generator (someday i guess) and dinghy is made of 316L ss and 1.90 in size....some of the cross members will be 1 inch dia. so I can easily attach things to it like BBQ or GoPro, bumpers etc

the weather has broken here to above 1 degree so I was able to start putting together the parts that I have been making over the winter....right at the moment it is coming together as planned, but we know that can change anytime.

I want to try and think ahead and install a pipe or tube for a wind generator....what I need to know is what size of pipe would be good.....

Re: arch...430....wind generator

Depends on the wind generator. Many take a schedule 40 pipe but I just got a D400 to replace my Kiss and it takes a smaller pipe so I had to get an insert made. By the way the D400 is even
better than the Kiss.
