Info/Photos for fitting fish stabilizers

Hi fellow DeFever owners, I'm looking for info and photos of fish stabilizers being added to DeFevers. We own a 44 and wish to fit aluminium wings to ours for extended cruising. Here's a photo of ours currently. Thankyou in advance.

Paravanes?

Are you talking about installing Paravanes like these on my DeFever 48?

Hi Nomad, yes just like yours is what were hoping to fit. My concerns are the mounting to hull points. Could you please provide some infromation on how you did this to your vessel. My main problem is access to the hull behind the tanks and whether the rubbing strake and companion way cap are capable of supporting mounting hardware.
Cheers Richard.

Thanks again Nomad and Siestakey for your help in providing info and photo's. As mentioned I'm particularly interested in the mounting points (including stays), so if its easier to email me directly, please do. My email address appears in an earlier post.

Cheers
Richard

Thanks again for the photo's. They certainly provide food for thought. I will contact Nomad with a couple of specific questions regarding the framework.

If anyone has done this to an aft cab version I would love to hear from them also.

Thanks again.
Richard
