KVH Sailing System

Idora came equiped with a two display KVH system. Rather old stuff but still serviciable. This particular setup has the wind direction indicator and a multifunction display that has boat speed, depth, and windspeed indications. I have two questions for the group.

1- The wind speed sender at the mast head has worn bearings and needs replaced. Since KVH is apparently not in this business anymore, any ideas on replacement anamometers? Will anything work with my current display?

2- I would like a depth display repeater in the cockpit. Can I set one up using the current system or can I run two systems off one transducer?

Hopefully someone has worked this problem with KVH stuff before and can point me the correct direction. Thanks.

Todd
