Wind generators on mizzen mast

Postby apropos43 » Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:01 am

Has anyone mounted a Wind Generator on the mizzen mast of an HC43? I'm considering that along with solar panels on the dodger, but am worried about noise down below in the cabin, especially in the 2 aft sleeping berths. I've heard good things about KISS generators that are supposed to be quiet outside, but a vibration noise down below is still a concern.

One of the 43 cutters we looked at before finding Syrah had a wind generator on a pole on the aft end.
It was nearly silent outside but when I crawled into the aft berth the "grinding" sound of it spinning had
traveled down the pole and was loud enough to record on video!

Up on the mizzen mast should be okay as a wind genny would be mounted on a platform like a radar and
not be on a post 10ft above the aft cabins.

A quick internet search found several references to mizzen mounted wind generators that, at higher
wind speeds, caused noise or vibration noise to travel down the mast into the aft cabins.

We also stumbled across a mount from Florida with a "vibration isolator", something to possibly consider as a solution.

Good luck with your purchase and install.

I have a Ampair 100 mounted on my mizzen and have no issues. You hear the wind more than the generator. If I put my ear to the mast I do hear the generator noise above the wind but that's it, so I wouldn't worry too much about vibration or noise if I were you.
