Re: Hydrovane windvane

Hydrovane is an auxiliary rudder wind vane. Yours is missing vane and rudder. what exactly are you offering for sale?

Putting this info in the ad will likely be more productive with responses.

Re: Hydrovane windvane

Is this the VXAD model? What is the shaft length size? I might be interested in just the shaft if it is the L model. Let me know.

Re: Hydrovane windvane

Looks like the newer model? Can you confirm or add some closer pictures.

If so this will be a fantastic deal for someone. Even if not they can still upgrade to the newer fittings if they prefer.

Hydrovane makes an excellent vane and their service is tops.

Re: Hydrovane windvane

I bought a used Hydrovane and have rudder shaft and housing for it. It's 36 inches and was to short for my boat.

Did the same. Bought newest version used for $1600 plus shipping and 36 inch was to short. At the time it was $1000 for shaft and another $1000 for the housing. Bought 2 x52 inch tube 316 for a $100 and super duplex alloy shaft for $300. $150 for machining both of them . You do the math. The thing that I didnít foresee is that when under sail my boat burry her but so the rudder is almost fully submerged

Re: Hydrovane windvane

Selling because it doesn’t work? I have one. It won’t hold a course for more than few minutes. Looking for other options.
