Brian, I'm about to place an order on one of Ken Fleming's new design windvanes. I'm sure if you would like some info Ken is more than happy to talk to customers directly. If you look at the website www.flemingselfsteer.com you will see the autopilot option. This allows a very small and inexpensive autopilot to hook up to the vane. This uses the force of the water to steer the boat resulting in a cheaper auto pilot and less electricity consumption. I did have a monitor on my W32 when I got it but it was going to cost a packet to overhaul and the new fleming vane is a big step forward in the use of cast stainless steel with a very compact footprint. I'll eventually post some photos on my site when it arrives.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
