Years ago, my wind
point fin cracked.
I fixed it with 5200 which lasted several years.
I fixed it again last summer while on vacation
, but it only lasted until I got home.
I replaced the fin and cups with originals purchased on eBay.
The first problem ever encountered was no wind registering until nearly ten knots, then it was still turning slowly.
