Optional custom made airvane for boats with Mizzen Booms
If you insist to have an airvane that fits under the mizzen boom, an optional shorter mizzen vane is available. In general, we feel that this vane isnt necessary, since tacking and jibing is "the event of the week" in normal cruising. All Monitor air vanes can be taken off in seconds and put back after the tack and when a preventer is on the boom. The standard high aspect airvanes are more effective than the shorter wider version. If you want to short tack up a narrow channel, the mizzen airvane could come in handy but normally we suggest that you use either the mizzen or the Monitor. Hundred of boats with mizzen booms have Monitors. We do not consider it to be a problem.
