Hydrovane trim tab self steering wind vane for sale

Up for sale is a 1970's era hydrovane self steering windvane. designed to fit on an external rudder with a trim tab. has some minor cosmetic imperfections- I have not used it, too small for my boat, will handle boats up to about 33/34 feet. Attached is a picture. Shipping might be interesting, I am happy to ship, but it is HEAVY! If i took it off the mahogany mount it would be a lot lighter.
I am thinking something in the 300 range, as I am currently (still) in the US thats USD
Am happy to answer any questions, let me know if you are interested
