Re: Used Aries Wind Vane -- Should I go for it?

Another happy Aries owner here. Price seems good if it's in good shape.

We have a couple of different vane sizes which we use depending on wind. It does require at least 8 knots to steer reliably, which is probably why some people report problems on the downwind sail (lower apparent wind). It also takes a bit of time to learn the art, but really, it's not hard to use.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
