Sayes Rig Hydrovane windvane self steering

Sayes rig hydrovane. Works on boats where many other windvane setups won't. Has many strong points over other styles of vanes while underway. Sturdy construction of solid bronze and stainless. Complete upper unit, the big $ part. You will need to size the lower unit, shaft and arms, to your boat anyhow as they are not interchangeable. Check their website for more info on this awesome vane. 1000$ or best offer. Located in Hawaii, Cheers

Re: Sayes Rig Hydrovane windvane self steering

But folks, Hydrovane and Saye's rig are two different systems. From the description, I think this gu y is offering a Saye's Rig vane, which is a servo pendulum affair which acts directly on the ships rudder. The Hydrovane is an auxiliary rudder with trim tab affair, completely different in principle and in execution.

And the OP has been absent since January!

Hi, Yes, that is indeed how it reads, though either will work. Let us hope he does reappear and sees the record of our interest.
