Masthead Unit CK35

Postby Shae77 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 2:14 pm


I have been looking through various photos of Masthead units (wind transducer) and noticed that many have placed them on the Mizzen mast. It is my understanding that the clean air from the main would be a better placement. Can anyone share there thoughts or experiences with this?

The masthead instruments are easier to get at and to connect on the mizzen, though you are correct that they might be more accurate on the main. Fitting them with the VHF aerial and the masthead lights would make the main quite crowded, otherwise.
