Gee, didya think of asking the chap who runs Wind Pilot? He's a very helpful fellow and has been known to respond to e-mail enquiries.

Re: pacific plus vane gear

Used an 8” x 48” corrugated plastic vane on our WPPP vane for winds to 10-15K. Made response of vane way better in lighter winds. Haven’t used the stock vane including a transpacific for years but our conditions are typically light. If I can find the plywood vane will send the dimensions of when I go to the boat tomorrow.
