St60 wind instrument and transducer wanted

I am looking to add a wind instrument to add to my other Raymarine speed, depth, and autohelm instruments, if anyone has a st60 instrument kit laying around, let's talk.

Re: St60 wind instrument and transducer wanted

If you don't fine a used Raymarine wind instrument, consider the one made by Moor Electronics in NY. My Raymarine units have failed so often (four new units in nine years) that I searched all over for something else. The Moor unit cost about $500 from Defender - and that includes transducer, 100' of mast cable and the display. The only "negative" for some people is that it doesn't tie in to your other instruments via NMEA. No problem for most of us.

Re: St60 wind instrument and transducer wanted

Thank you very much for your reply, but my goal is to get the wind data to my Raymarine wheel drive autopilot so it can steer to wind angle instead of bearing. I did look at the Moor equipment, it looks very simple, self powered, and likely, very reliable. I currently have a catalina 270 with a helm mounted Navpod with an autopilot and Tridata for depth and speed, and one empty place waiting for a wind display. I hope to find someone who has recently upgraded to newer equipment, and could sell me the Raymarine st60 wind display and or transducer.

I've got a used ST60 wind display you can have for free. I don't know if it still works. This is what it looks like (I don't know how to insert photos):
