"Plans only" are not available.

The H2 kit

410 GB Pounds (excluding carriage).

This is the basic kit which includes all 316 stainless steel components prefabricated and drilled by laser ready to bolt on to the frame, carbon fibre for the push rod and vane, all s/s metal fastenings, plans, instructions and license to build.

The frame is easily constructed from strips - glued together by any reasonably competent sailor with wood-working skills. There is no welding required or bearings needing to be fitted. Parts can be replaced easily but it is unlikely to need this as the wind vane is designed to be robust. All moving parts are metal to metal which are trouble free and efficient.

Around 5 metres of wood at 145mm by 20mm (which is EU standard) is required for the frame and will cost approximately 50 GB pounds in a timber merchant. This then needs to be cut accurately into the strips by circular saw according to instructions given.

The H1 complete kit

530 GB Pounds (excluding carriage)

This is identical to the the H2 kit but includes American Oak for the frame ready cut into the required strips.

Carriage costs are not included in the price. Please enquire giving address and post code, and specify H1 or H2 kit. Thank you.

Recipients of orders from outside EU may be charged import taxes.

I will gladly help and advise during the build if necessary. Contact me.

190 GBP plus carriage.

(H1 and H2 kits include "manual" for course changing and is interchangeable with "remote").

"Remote course adjustment" complete. (Minus rope to change course).

260 GBP plus carriage.

Ready to fit (and adjust) to existing Hebridean wind vane.
