So you use a traditional wind sensor, huh, :| I thought you were using an ultrasonic wind sensor. Geeze John, I'm still trailering my boat - I don't have my own dock like you do so I want something with no moving parts so I don't need to remove it every time I trailer the boat.

:( I thought you had an ultrasonic sensor - I can't find anyone to help me with an ultrasonic sensor - :(

I will have that Pegasus wind sensor that is supposed to work on a rotating mast tore off the boat pretty soon - anyone that wants to buy it can have it - name your price. (I would recommend some one who understands electronics might want to use it - because I could not get it to work for more than an hour).

This amazingly well-planned and well-executed work and for such a reasonable expense. Interesting and impressive.

Will there be a backstay?

Yes the backstay on it,s traveler which allows the back stay to b adjusted from port to starboard as the mast rotates which keeps a direct aft pull on the mast "not a sideways pull " will b re -installed once I figure out where my VHF, TV, wind, cell ph marine booster antenna,s & radar radome positions r finally decided on so as not to interfere with the backstay movement & 3 solar panels yet to b installed :) along with future dinghy davits :wink:

Solar panels and future dinghy davits? John, you have to let the rest of us catch up on the mods :!: You should get the boat on a scale...I'd love to know the weight.
