B&G Instruments

I have an older (97) B&G wind indicator on my boat. I bought the boat last year and I am trying to find out the model of the unit. The masthead unit comes off the mast at a 45 degree angle. The board is fried and the neck is cracked. Replacing the unit is very expensive. Any ideas???

Re: B&G Instruments

Gee, that is almost a new one. My B&G dates from 1987. Most likely a Network from the date. But to get it repaired/updated etc and ask questions about it, 2 sources:

Re: B&G Instruments

We are replacing our B & G with wireless... Just makes way more sense than repairing.
