One thing I noticed when we bought our boat was that although it had an antenna
on top of the mast
, there was no windex spinning in the wind
up there. After digging through out dock
box and sorting out all the various unknown parts
and goodies we had, we found the windex, broken in half.
As we're (fingers crossed) putting the engine
back together this weekend and heading out for our first sail, we were up the mast
working on the lights and whatnot, so we went to West Marine
and spent about $40 to buy a replacement windex to stick up there.
Well, when my brother opened the box, he found the tail fin rather warped, and of course he tried to straighten it. This resulted in it breaking off.
So now we have one windex that is broken in half and one that has no rear fin.
Are these things really THAT precisely weighted that it would mess up their directional accuracy if I used a little fiberglass
to repair them?
Are there any other options that are a better quality material?
