Sayes Rig

$2500. This is half off the current retail price from Scanmar.

All parts in good shape, located in Seattle.

Description:
The Saye's Rig is a unique, pendulum trimtab-on-main-rudder windvane combining the principles of servo pendulum and auxiliary rudder windvanes.

​The Saye’s Rig base assembly is made of cast bronze and the mast, tiller assembly and pendulum shaft in 316 stainless steel. The airvane itself is made of traditional white sailcloth making the Saye’s Rig look right at home on the transom of a classic sailing yacht.

​An outstanding feature of the Saye’s Rig is its simplicity. As the boat begins to veer off course, the vertical airvane rotates the pendulum trimtab. The force of the water flowing against the trimtab moves it and the tiller arm to either port or starboard. Because the tiller arm is attached directly to the boat’s rudder, the rudder also moves to port or starboard.

The Saye’s Rigs mast, and pendulum shaft can easily be removed in minutes without tools, leaving just the bronze base assembly and tiller arm attached to the boat.

The Saye's Rig will effectively steer boats up to 65 feet and represents the only option when auxiliary rudder and servo-pendulum windvanes won't work. Scanmar has mounting drawings for hundreds of boats in our database. If we haven't done your boat before, we'll design a mounting system using 3D CAD technology.

Re: Sayes Rig

Is this still available? If so, what boat is it from? I am looking for a self steering system for my Dufour 31 with cable operated wheel steering.

Re: Sayes Rig

Yes, still available. It is from a CT 35, also with cable operated wheel steering. My CT 35 is actually 30 ft hull length, with a 5 ft bowsprit.
