i recently fell into a great deal and happened upon an old monitor windvane
from the pre scanmar days. the vane is from the late 70's but has been sitting in a storage
unit for the last 15 years. i have already talked to the guys at scanmar.
the story goes that the original monitors (the first 300 or so) were built in a garage in southern california
, and sold
under the name "Larwyck". there have been little tweeks over the years but looking at it you wouldnt know it isnt a monitor
. it will be a while before i get it on the boat
, but for $400 im happier then a pig in poo
heres a few pictures, just wondering if any of you lot out there are still cruising around with an old larwyck hanging off the back?
