Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I built this wind vane a few years ago with my old man, I don't have any pictures of the building process but here is a video of "windy" doing what she does, steering =D

At this point it wasn't quite finished yet, there is no tiller on the auxiliary rudder. Notice the counter weight, a plastic bottle full of rocks screwed and epoxied in place as per the KISS system

At one point for the counter weight we had a boot tied on
