Half way thru; got up the mast today and pulled the arm and ran all the calibrations after clean and lube. Looking for another nice day to get back up.
Hope this works!
Thnx

Hopefully that will do it for you for awhile. On our boat it's usually about a two year cycle. (In fact, I have a replacement wand/spindle assembly and when the one in place goes south, I pull the display and linearize and calibrate the spare and take it aloft to swap with the dysfunctional wand which, after cleaning, becomes the spare.) N'any case, Good Luck!

Re: Standard Horizon WS100

I had good luck with SH getting my depth log display refurbished. Reasonable price and the turnaround time was decent (mailed to them and back). Found their support did well (that was in '07) So if the fix doesn't work, you might want to contact them before buying something else.

Did all the lini-cali-prayer stuff and took it back to the top today. So far so good on the wind speed. But it takes many hours to freeze so hard to be sure yet. The wind direction was 180 out! First correction failed but second correction seems to have taken.

Hopefully we're good. Thanks much HyLyte!

I am pleased that you've had success so far. Unfortunately, getting the wind direction calibrated properly is something of a pain in the neck. Frankly, I settle for something that's within 5º or so as I mostly rely on our Windex anyway and I'm really only interested in relative differences on the SH when referring to that. Let's hope it continues to work for awhile as going to the masthead really is also pain in the neck.

Cheers...

We kept loosing windexes so we rely on the instrument.

I like going up the mast, as long as there are no big rolling wakes trying to throw me off!
Yesterday we had a whopper of a wake come rolling in from a big yacht...luckily it was 5 minutes after I came down!

We've had our best luck calibrating the indicator by taking the yacht out on a relatively light air day and motoring directly into what wind there is at our top speed. We do this on the river where we're moored, rather than in the near-by bay, to minimize the effect of wave action on apparent wind and with that, can get pretty accurate. An alternative is to go to the masthead, manually hold the pointer in place first forward and then aft, and have a helper set the calibration on the instrument itself. One can then also check the linearization of the unit itself as a 180º change at the masthead should be reflected, exactly, on the instrument. If it is off somewhat, one can go through the linearization process a second time; or, one can do alternating calibration corrections, from forward to aft and back, by removing 1/2 of the error each rotation, in each direction.

N'any case, good luck. You've got the device working again and hopefully that will last for awhile.

Cheers...

Just wondering how your repair is working out at this point?

LOOKIN GOOD!

Have not calibrated with other boats for accuracy but it isn't freezing up and looks to be in the ballpark

Thanks very much
