Wind Generators


Chuck and Pam Cannon

i have a westsail32 and want to add a wind generator. i'm looking at a kiss generator, but mounting it seems to be a problem. do i hang it from the rigging or mount it on the stern. with the boom so long, i'm finding it hard to mount the pole so far aft. i would like to see pictures of the setup if possible to figure it out. i was also thinking of cutting the boom shorter to accomidate this setup???????

Hi, We are in the process of having a targa built for the back of our K32, and it is due this week, so I'll post progress photos on our website (www.yachtdaemon.com) when it is on. There is a plastic tube mockup photo on there already. Ours will be an H shape & go behind the backstays, with the KISS generator and radar on poles at either side. We did shorten our boom by around 16 inches which has freed up the back of the boat and made steering a lot easier.
Good luck!
Jill
