Thanks.I am not familiar with that model. Here the ones that are used are nšs 13 and 14 (Winchard). I guess Erick uses nš 13 that is the one that I intend to mount. Just to be sure that is the right size

If I understand well the design the one you point will work well but it will not be as fast as any of the other two and we are talking about a removable stay that will only be mounted in bad weather.
