Design for mizzenmast wind gen 360 mount needed

I intend to mount a wind generator on the front of my mizzenmast. I have looked at the commercially available brackets but find them severely overpriced for what they are.
I have excellent fabrication skills with pipe tube and sheet and access to CBC plasma table.
What I don’t have is “design” skills
Does anyone have a design they have that both looks good and is functional, that they are willing to share? Thanks

There are many radar mounts on the market that may Be repurposed for your intended use. Or at least “inspire“ your design.

We made ours similar to this mount out of aluminum. Oversized the tube holder in the frame to bed the wind gen mount pole w/5200 to help reduce vibration. Been up for years and works well.
