Windvanes on Ketches or Yawls

Call or email (several) vane manufacturers. You need the distance from the deck to the underside of the boom or first sheeting rigging that might interfere. They can also customize a bracket mounting system, based on your boat''s manufacture and their experience with the craft, to avoid any ill effects from sail drafting. Generally, they have detailed familiarity with most boat models.....I''m sure your Cheoy Lee ketch model has had a vane mounted in the past
