Raymarine ST60

My St60 wind gauge is acting up. It measures speed well and the cups spin, But the wind direction is erratic and never seems to stabilize.
When I look at the unit on the mast, you can see the wind pointer, but it just spins around back and fourth. Any thoughts. Many thanks Al

Has a bit fallen off the weather vane? My old ST50 looked like its tail had been assaulted by seagulls (actually, UV damage).

Eventually a raising bridge took it (and paid for the replacement.)

Just went through similar problem with my ST60. You might first check the set screw where the vane sits on the shaft of the sending unit, as well as the connections to the display. But...chances are your final solution will be the same as mine---replacing the sensor unit at the masthead.

The vane on my wind indicator broke. The rest of the unit is functioning well. Has anybody who has replaced their masthead unit saved old parts? I would like to buy the vane. Thanks!

you can buy one from raymarine and if you want to cheap out order a rotovecta unit but have fun calibrating it.
I have an st40 with the rotavecta and it was nasty to calibrate but works perfect now.
what exactly happened to it? i know of a shop that repairs these units.
