Aires standard #3 wind vane for sale central Florida

I've got an Aires windvane for sale. It will need the 3 nylon bushings (parts no. 7 and no. 53) replaced and does not include a wheel adapter or the rudder coupling (part no. 68). Included are 2 identical painted plywood vanes and the pattern for producing spares. In good condition, must pickup or can deliver within 30 miles of Titusville Fl. ( no shipping )

The servo rudder is brand new, never seen the water. The wind vane operates and moves smoothly and is installed on my boat although I've never used it.

Due to the coupling joint missing this vane is firmly priced at $500 non- neg. I can send pictures or you're welcome to come by and I'll run you out to see it.

Aires standard #3 wind vane for sale central Florida

There are a myriad of mounting schemes for this vane. Google Aires Wind Vane Type 3 and hit 'images' instead of 'web'. You'll see dozens. Mine has two horizontal tubes clamped to the transom about 4 inches on either side of my single back stay running fore and aft. Then two diagonal braces about 45 degrees downward and bolted to the outside of the transom. I'll try to get some pictures today and post them tomorrow.

It moves smoothly, and although it's still mounted on the boat, I can have it ashore in 20 minutes.
