Auto-Helm Windvane SelfSteering - $250

Trim tab auxiliary rudder windvane. Separate rudder and control head makes this rig ideal for center cockpits or ketches, or boats with davits, since the vane can be mounted in a different location than the rudder. The system is complete with the exception of one L-bracket and the four hull brackets. All are available from Scanmar. Auto-helm originally made two sizes of this system, and this is the smaller size. Best suited to boats under 34 feet. Due to the size and weight of the auxiliary rudder, shipping will be quite expensive....hence the very low price. Please refer to Scanmar’s website for any questions about installation. The manual is posted there.

As Polar said in his original post “ due to the size and weight of the auxiliary rudder, shipping will be quite expensive”. I am in California and will step a side for pressuredrop since he can pick it up.
May the winds be fair, the weather kind. Cheers

Hi,
Been looking for this type of unit. It will match my boat. If things fall through with first guys please contact me and I will send a money transfer.
If it sells to the first guys please tell them that I will pay twice the price.

Just for the information of other buyers, the shipping to California was as much as I am asking for the unit...$250.


PM sent to second-in-line. I'll keep the post current as things progress.

Good Morning,
Could you please tell pressuredrop.
If rudder is not water logged, I would pay 750 for the autohelm if interested?
Regards
