Thanks Dennis, I submitted the relevant query to the web site of hamiltonferries.
Even if I saw another one, maybe easier to implement, made by SS tubes and once marketed by SuperWind.
Anyhow thans a lot for your feedback of experience.

Hello Siviero,

I have the wind generator mounted on my mizzen mast just below the radar antenna as you propose.  I don't know if it's because of the type of generator we have (AirBreeze with aftermarket propellers) or if the location is good, but we have no issue with vibration or excessive noise.  This is the bracket I used: http://www.hamiltonferris.com/products/Wind_Power/Wind_Generator_Mounts/51.  I did modify it with an aluminum plate riveted onto the top of the horizontal arms for additional rigidity.  The biggest problem was routing the wire/cable through the mast, into one of the internal conduits -just like the radar antenna installation.  Sorry, I don't have a drawing with dimensions.  You might be able to get a drawing of the bracket with dimensions from the source.
