ideas for mounting wind generator on a 32 ft. sloop

K, altho'' I would hate to be without our wind generator (we cruise and it does help battery consumption noticeably), I''d be inclined to choose solar over wind on your smaller boat. (See my note on solar panels). You''ll need to get the pole up a ways (for safety) which puts weight back aft and higher up than you might prefer after you live with it for a while.
