We have a classic stern with a wind vane
. I put the mounts on the out side of the hull
. However only about 6" forward. I have played with the Drouge bridle
and at some point the drouge will be pulling on just one side of the bridle
and will hit the windvane
. From what I have read the drouge keeps you from slewing around enough that it may not be a problem, on our boat. On your boat mounted fwd, the bridle is probably going to rub on the hull
first before the vane and rudder. I don't remember the guidelines for bridle length but longer would be better?
