CYS Wind Vane--Can't locate company . . .still doing business?

My Pearson 30 has a CYS wind vane, and while bouncing around on some Lake Erie rollers I recently lost a small component of the system (pin that fits in the upper bearing plate that links the clutch with the main shaft).

If anyone has information on the company or on Bob Verhaege, the CYS Vane designer/inventor, please let me know.

The other option is to manufacture the part myself. A stainless steel bolt or screw may provide an effective and reliable replacement for the original part that was swallowed by the lake demons.

I'll take a photo of the wind vane and post ASAP.
