Aries Wind Vane

Don Montgomery and Lana Nelson

Does anyone have an interest in an Aries Wind Vane that works well and is in great condition? Please let me know ASAP as I plan to offer it this weekend at a Sailing Gear flee market

Randell 'Randy' Kocurek

Just for your information, these Aries vanes appear to be pretty valuable. My boat came with one. I forget whom it was, but one WOA member went around and was considering ebay etc, almost exactly one year ago. You may wish to check old threads from the WOA bulletin board for more information before you set a price.

Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that I was about to try to offer I think $1500.00 for that same vane last year when my boat became available with vane installed. Not to say I know anything about value, but that's what I was thinking. The seller was not too anxious to sell, either.

Don Montgomery and Lana Nelson

Hi Randy,

Thank you for the valuable information......no pun intended! I hope to find a suitable buyer above $1,500 plus shipping.


Fred K. Cheney

That might have been me, I ended up selling my Aries on eBay for just under $1500.00 To a guy in working in Iraq, but had just bought a Kendall in California... The shipping cost from FL to there was around $265.00, I think, Haven't heard from him since, he had a website, but I can't seem to find it at the moment...

Randell 'Randy' Kocurek

Hey Fred,
Yes, I think that was you, and thanks for entertaining my idea. Sounds like a fair price. As most things on my W32, I tend to be pleasantly surprised at resale values of old hardware.

Don Montgomery and Lana Nelson

This item is sold.

Thank you for your interest.

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!
