Air-X Mizzen Mount

Does anyone here have an Air-X mounted on a mizzen mast? I am curious as to the mechanics of the mount, whether there is an off-the-shelf mount for the mizzen, and if available, who makes it.

Thanks!

Southwest Marine shows the Airx on a mizzen mount in their brochure...why not give them a call and they can probably either sell you the kit or tell you who to talk to.

I have a Marine-x wind generator mounted on my mizzen mast. Looked around at all the mounts available ( not that many) and decided to mount it ON TOP of the mizzen. Simply put, I boat a length of 1 1/2 heavywall aluminum tubing and through bolted it to the mizzen. Make sure you put it up high enough to clear the mizzen to main mast shroud. but not so high that you can't reach it for maintenance.
