Looking for Windvane Steering Gear

Can anyone guide me to a source of a second-hand Monitor or Aries system for a Contessa 35 with wheel steering and forward-angled transom? Any ideas on the relative merits of these two systems or any other pendulum servo-actuated ones?


Grateful for any advice or offers.

I believe Aries is long out of business.

I very much like the look and the testimonials behind Voyager Windvanes:

I have had some discussions with the manufacturer and I believe his products are among the finest I've seen.
