Clipper wind instruments

Anyone have any experience with the

Re: Clipper wind instruments

I had one installed at Xmass. So far its worked perfectly but I havn't really given that much use yet.
No complaints so far.

If you mean the Nasa ones from Britian I love mine and the price for parts is great too.

Re: Clipper wind instruments

I believe they are called NASA in some markets. Can they be integrated with Raymarine 60 series, ie to determine true windspeed or work with an auto-pilot?

Re: Clipper wind instruments

I just got my NMEA 183 Mast head unit from NASA this week!! And the autopilot back from repair!! All go back on board this week.
I bought the mast head unit to replace my Airmar Ultrasonic that died.

Cheers

Re: Clipper wind instruments

I had clipper NASA stuff. Not a happy camper, speed never was close to gps speed readings. Wind instument mast head died 2 then give uop. Depth sounder never worked, sent it back and they never replaced or refunded my cash!

Apart from that loved them.

I bought my stuff 12 years ago.
