Hydrovane vane

I had a complete duhh! moment when we recently designed and installed a new arch on the back of our Bowman 40. I forgot to think about the wind vane on the Hydrovane. Now there is not enough room for it.

Would I be able to build a new vane that fits. It could be the same area, but the chord would need to be twice the present chord?

Thanks got any advice

Thanks Gord,

I've emailed the manufacturer about the shorter wider vanes in those photos. Thanks for the tip.

Regards.

Steve
