I'll let others speak to the performance on a W28, or the performance of the Monitor in particular, however I will add that I've heard great things about the Monitor on the W32, and I can't imagine that the W28 would be significantly different.

I've got an Aries windvane on my W32 and the performance is very good (it would be better once I dial in the location of the control line blocks). I've heard that the Monitor works out even better than the Aries.

In any event, I wouldn't be offshore, alone or otherwise, without one of these vanes.

You can also check the logs of the guy, Alex Dorsey, over at www.projectbluesphere.com He had a W28, and very likely a Monitor vane on it. There might be some specific info there.
