No trouble getting these kits to you in the current Covic 19 crisis.

The H1 complete kit
480 GB Pounds (excluding carriage).


This kit includes American oak for the frame ready cut into strips, 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 the strips, cut to length and 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.


The H2 kit

380 GB Pounds (excluding carriage).

This kit is the same as the H1 kit but without the American oak for the frame.
Around 5 metres of hardwood 145mm by 20mm (which is EU standard) is required and will cost approximately 50 GB pounds in a timber merchant. This needs to be cut accurately into the strips by circular saw according to instructions given.

"Drum" kit for connection to wheel steering. 50 GBP plus carriage.

9mm plywood for drum and backing plate is not included.



Optional extra "Remote course adjustment" kit.

200 GBP plus carriage.


(H1 and H2 kits include "manual" for course changing and is interchangeable with "remote", so can be purchased and fitted at a later stage).



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.
