Big boat gear for sale

Clearing out the garage and consolidating my gear from the last several boats. Most of the gear is in northern NJ for pickup

2 - Icom M 802 SSB radios, tuners, mics, speakers
1- KISS SSB ground plane
1- Gam / McKim split lead SSB antenna
1- Hydrovane VXA2D self steering windvane
2- 175lb Bruce style claw anchors
1- 300' 1/2 galvanized anchor chain
1- Viking 6 Person SOLAS liferaft in hardshell with mounting cradle
1- Jordan Series Drogue

The Hydrovane was mounted on my 1999 Beneteau First 40.7 and used for one Bermuda race.

The radios need to be removed from my boats, one is here in NJ the other is in Maine.

Ask questions, make offers - contact me by email or private message

Thanks,
Jack

Re: Big boat gear for sale

I neglected to indicate prices for the gear -
2 - Icom M 802 SSB radios, tuners, mics, speakers $1,700 each
1- KISS SSB ground plane $100
1- Gam / McKim split lead SSB antenna $300
1- Hydrovane VXA2D self steering windvane $3,750
2- 175lb Bruce style claw anchors $500 each
1- 300' 1/2 galvanized anchor chain $1,000
1- Viking 6 Person SOLAS liferaft in hardshell with mounting cradle $3,000
1- Jordan Series Drogue $925

More detail on the drogue
The drogue is a well-made creation, doesn't have any markings so I don't believe it was made by a sail loft. The hand work is very nicely done and in excellent shape.
There are 4 parts of the drogue:
1. The bridle is 5/4" diameter Double Braid in 2 lengths 45' x 45' long connected to a heavy galv. thimble and with ten ton rated galv. shackle
2. The leader is 5/4” diameter Double Braid that’s 65' long with galv. thimbles both ends and a ten ton rated galv. shackle
3. 5/4” diameter Double Braid 105’ long with 60 cones and a 6 ton rated galv. shackle
4. 1” diameter Double Braid 70' long with 40 cones and galv. thimbles both ends

The bridle and leader are a full 5/4" diameter double braid. The first set of cones is run on the same diameter braided line and ends in one inch thick braid for the final set of cones. 110 cones in all. The weight of the braid is sufficient for a 30 ton boat. There is no sign of chafe anywhere so I believe it is safe to assume that it has never been deployed. I'm looking to get back what I have into it $925. 25k displacement drogue from the usual makers runs just under Fifteen Hundred with 3/4 or 7/8" braid.

Allow 150 pounds for the shipping weight. The drogue weighs about 105 lbs. and I'm estimating the shackles to be around 25 lbs. and shipping/crating materials at around 20 lbs.

More information on the Hydrovane
I bought it new and used it on my beneteau for a Bermuda race and solo return to Newport. After that it came off the boat and went into the garage.
Plans changed and no more long distance sailing meant it collects dust which is a shame for such a great piece of equipment. The configuration I got was for my Beneteau First 40.7 was a Hydrovane model VXA2D M/E/H
Drive Unit, Vane, Rudder - US$4,032
'H' Bracket - $445
'E' Bracket - $551
'M' shaft - $910
My total invoice for the system was $5,835.00

Depending upon your installation you will likely need to purchase the mounting tubes from Hydrovane as each installation cuts the stock lengths to size. You will also need to purchase half of each bracket since the half mounted on the boat is still on the boat. All things considered, I'm asking
$3750 for it.

Re: Big boat gear for sale

The liferaft is a Viking DK6+ that was purchased new in 2011 and has not been repacked since purchase. It comes with the aluminium cradle and hydrostatic release.
