Re: Monitor wind vane for sale

This Monitor is older than 2006. There are no signs of cracks or other damage, generally it appears near new condition.

Re: Monitor wind vane for sale

I believe that the stainless steel change was actually made way back in 1997, though whilst ours is a '97 unit, it must've been made in 96, or steel still in stock from then. We've had no crack/fracture problems, but it does rust more than the newer units.

You can get the year from the unit number - it'll be etched into the upper, forward cross-tube - the last two numbers being the year it was first sold/left the factory

Re: Monitor wind vane for sale

What boat was this mounted on previously? Just trying to get a feel for what would be required to retrofit it on our IP40 (flat transom).

Thanks,
EB

Re: Monitor wind vane for sale

Unless you have a very unusual A35, it is a regular rather than reverse transom. A "reverse transom" is a more modern style, borne out of racing rules I believe, with the flat part pointing towards the sky, rather than the traditional one with the flat pointing towards the water.

Hi Do you have any pictures of the wind vane mounted so I can see what would be involved in mounting on my transom?

Check out the Scanmar web site (the mfg of the monitor wind vane), they show a wide variety of installation options. http://www.selfsteer.com/products/mo...stallation.php
