I am mounting a Garmin gWind wireless transducer. Should I mount it on the Mizzen or Main mast? Both masts are the same height. The Main mast already has stuff mounted on it, (e.g., tricolor, anchor light ...). All advice gratefully received.

Thanks. Paul

Don't think it matters. If one mast has got stuff on it already, use the other. Is one easier to get up and down on (i.e. steps installed etc.)?

I believe it is recommended that it be mounted on the forward most mast, pointed forward to keep it in the most undisturbed air. On the mizzen you will have the chance of disturbed air from the main sail affecting a true reading.
