I know a lot of Crealocks have self-steering wind vanes (usually Monitors),
but I don't know for sure if such a thing would fit with a mizzen sail.
Has anyone ever seen the combination?
Has anyone ever measured to see if the vane would interfere with the mizzen boom?

I have a monitor wind vane and couldn't tell u as my crealock is a cutter rig. However even if it did interfere I believe you could modify the monitor vane to the height and still have it work. If that didn't work I would build a "T" shaped vane that would still have the same surface area for light winds.

what your looking for imho is the surface area. Not necessarily the height.

I'll bet the manufacturer has heard this question before.
