Don't take this the wrong way but I've never seen a wind vane on the transom of a sailboat!
Wind vanes are either at the mast head or on the shrouds - for a very good reason - so they are in undisturbed air so as to get as accurate an indication of wind direction as possible.
On the transom, it will be in bad air off both sails all the time - except when your sitting at anchor.
Just because you're paranoid ...doesn't mean they're not after you!
