    Recognize this wind speed socket????

    Hi folks - my E29 came with a mast head wind/speed direction socket at the masthead and cable running down the mast but no gauges or sensor. Pics of the socket are attached.

    Add a Mast Head Wind Speed and Direction Sensor on a E38

    My local boat yard is advising me that it would likely be necessary to remove the mast to place a wind indicator at the mast head of my E38. Is this necessary or can the wiring just be dropped down inside and through from above? Thanks Jeff Hart

    Time our 35-II got new sails ... but we've changed wind environment. Need advice.

    If you are familiar with the 35-II's handling I really could use some of the groups collective wisdom. Thanks. I have spent the last 5 years slowly rehabbing our 1976 35-II (electrical, plumbing, deck re-core, standing & running rigging are finally done) and it is now time to replace the...

    Wind in Long Beach / Wilmington vs Dana Point

    Hi folks - I have a 25+ that I'm not using because I've found the wind in the Dana Point area where I keep her to be, lousy. Now I'll be the first to admit that I'm still a newbie, and my light air skills are probably marginal. That said every time I sailed with friends out of the Long Beach...

    Wind Speed Indicator

    Does anyone know who the manufacturer is for the 1989 E 38-200??? It is mounted on the port side of the cabin entryway and it's round. If they no longer exist, what would fit the hole or would a square have to be fit into it? Thanks Jay E 38-200 SF Bay

    Finally got to take our E39-B out in some wind

    A beautiful Friday ! We've had light winds every time we've been out in the past so this weekend was a nice change (but not too much change until we get the standing rigging replaced). The wind speed instrument seems to need some calibration, but I'd guess we had about 8 to 10 m/sec or...

    Navman Wind 3100 failure

    After 17 seasons my Datamarine wind speed masthead unit failed, and I was informed that it was not repairable. I bought a Navman 3100 and it worked well for one season. The Navico folks were nice enough to replace first the display and then the mast head units when the system stopped working...

    wanted to borrow: Datamarine masthead wind instrument

    I had all my in-mast wiring replaced this spring, and subsequently my Datamarine wind speed and direction instrument does not work. The yard claims that my masthead transducer is at fault.
