Installing A Wind Vane

In this tutorial Alex talks us through the process of installing a B&G wind vane on his stepped mast sailing vessel. This process uses an existing piece of fabricated stainless steel to mount the wind vien kit to the mast using basic metal working tools.


Your Mast Requirments

Note that Alex carefully considers that his mast will need to be regularly stepped down. We have come across many sailing vessels that don't have an adequate wiring system in place. It's important that your wiring will allow for dropping a mast, especially if you have a trailer sailor. If you don't take the time to wire the mast correctly you make a future mast drop a bigger task than it needs to be. Holding up the crane is a costly mistake!
