I am aware of the scam listings for Monitor
windvanes. Before you get to excited, this is for local sale
and pickup only. I am not willing to ship. I won’t take paypal for payment and I am not asking for a deposit. If you want to make a purchase
, you must first personally inspect the windvane
and then pay with $2000 cash if you choose to make a purchase
As I write this listing, I am at home in Wichita, KS. We don’t take the paper and I think it has gone all digital. Not sure and don’t care. We are leaving for our boat
in Rockport TX this weekend, and will take the Monitor
with us. I think there is a printed paper there. We’ll see.
I am not making a public posting
of the serial
number for obvious reasons. Begin contact with a PM. You will need the serial
number so you can call Scanmar to learn the history
on this Monitor.
Here is what I know or can remember: An acquaintance purchased this monitor from the Rockport Marine
Flea Market. He never finished restoring his boat
. He hauled it home to San Angelo TX. In the fall of 2018 I learned he had the Monitor and purchased it from him with the intention of installing it on my Catalina 36
with a swim deck
. I designed a hinged mount for the installation
and then learned that my wife is not willing to go cruising. Too much work
to just play with it so I hauled it home.
As I recall
, the lady at Scanmar told me what it had been installed on and she judged it was not in service
very long and should have low wear. I agree with the low wear with the exception of the large plastic trim pulley. It was plastic, broken, and weathered. I made a new pulley from 7075 aircraft aluminum
, painted and installed it. If you don’t like the pulley I made, just purchase a new plastic one to replace it.
adapter was purchased separately. I have no idea who made it as it has no markings on it. It has minor corrosion
and I don’t think it is made from 316. I did plan to use it and I think it would work
I received only the one wind vane
with this Monitor. Scanmar has instructions for making your own assortment of vanes from lightweight sign board. The one I have looks to be made from a door skin or very thin plywood
Please beware that you must either purchase an adapter kit from Scanmar or make the parts
to install this Monitor on your boat. Scanmar can provide you with an estimate for that adapter kit. The Scanmar website has manuals
details. Much to learn!
