South Atlantic 440 Self Steering Wind Vane $1,000

For sale: South Atlantic Self Steering Wind Vane. 440 $1,000 plus shipping

Description.
It is a servo-pendulum windvane. It is the most widely proven principle for a windvane. This principle offers a great sensitivity-strength balance.

The windvane is a fast and efficient steering system. The servo-pendulum system consists of a [sensor-vane] which transmits the change in the wind direction to the windvane rudder. This moves laterally on reception of the signal. The rudder is attached to the tiller by [lines] which move the tiller or wheel that steer the sail boat.

Re: South Atlantic 440 Self Steering Wind Vane $1,000

Did you buy this on eBay from that guy and it didn't work good?

Very little info available or proven success?

I'd be interested at this price, ship to 32080. But am vary wary without more info.
