Re: We Need Help with an Aries Wind Vane

Something to remember is to always use roller bearing blocks for your steering lines. It would not cause (or cure) the slamming, but when working properly, the roller blocks will help to make the vane more sensitive. Another 2 cents worth. _____Grant.

Re: We Need Help with an Aries Wind Vane

I think dyneema with a poly cover would be an excellent choice for the lines. Excellent chafe resistance and no stretch.

Re: We Need Help with an Aries Wind Vane

...just a thought: with the windvane hard over on a moving boat OF COURSE the paddle would go to one side...
(in general: if everything is assembled correctly & it's not steering the boat in 15kn on a beam reach - then the problem is the user)
