Wind Generator pole mounted
Today we mounted the wind generator pole on the boat. It is still very temporary but were getting an idea of how long the struts need to be and can we add one. There are some basic measurements that need o be met and one we cannot. That is the strut from the pole to the stern steps. It should have a minimum of 3.5 feet and there is no way unless you are willing to give up the stern steps, we are not.
One strut on
Port strut mount in with one temp bolt.
We may need to cut 4" off the pole to keep with the required measurements.
We hoping to add another strut to the pole and just under the solar panel.
All in all it seems to be working out fine. We still need to quite a bit but it is essentially up there.
