Default Windvane wanted in USA

Looking for a servo rudder windvane for Allied Mistress... most familiar with Aries, Monitor, Cape Horn.. but open to other models

Let me know what you have and we'll see if she's a fit.
Boat is in Rhode Island so U.S. only please. Not really interested in paying half again for international shipping.

Hi Jewel, thanks for the tip but I never could find the add... or maybe I was looking in the wrong place.

I'm still looking for a windvane... all tips or offers welcome.

Nearly new, one year old Monitor Windvane for sale; used about 3 weeks on a passage to Hawaii. This unit is specific to a Dana 24.
If interested: mwilson501@ gmail.com

Thanks Jewel. I dropped him a line but unfortunately he has decided to keep the windvane
... said he'll pull the post down.

Still on the prowl!

thanks for the tip.
Just talked to a guy in CT who has a Monitor with all the bits and pieces... I think that will be the one. Will pick it up in about a week when I'm headed back to the boat.

Sorry I haven't one to sale but I think you should aso consider a Hydrovane. We have one on our Moody 36 and it steers us to all points of the wind in all weathers, is simple to maintain (wash off with fresh water and spray with WD40 occasionally). There are also spare bushes and bearings available but I've never needed to replace them, nor did the previous owners who sailed for 21 years.
Kevin.
