Nexus wind transducer repair needed

Hi all

Anyone know where I can get my Nexus mast head wind unit repaired, or where I can get parts to do it myself?

Or - has anyone changed systems and have an old mast head unit they do not need?

Thanks

As far as I know the only place that can do repairs is ComNav in Vancouver, BC. They have been very helpful on the phone in helping me get my system going (combination of old and new instruments).

new nexus wind transducer

Dear Sirs:

There is one new NEXUS WIND TRANSDUCER in Panama.

I am a client of Panama Netbuy and I have seen it for months. I think they received it as a mistake or something, and are practically giving it away. No use in Panama.

E-mail: info@panamanetbuy.com

Telephones: 507 - 260 7810 and 507 - 202 1850

Think on how to approach them. They may become greedy.

I you want my help on this, please advice.

Regards

Oscar Jimenez

Dear Sir:

I saw in your web page that there are some fellows that may be in the need of this Transducer.

Please try to communicate with them about this device in Panama. It is almost free.

Regards,

Oscar

I tried e-mailing Dick Booth but got no answer. My Nexus wind transducer looks fine but the blades do not spin. It was fine when we left the boat on land for a year, and not working when we got back (Nov. 2010). Any other ideas?

I haven't been up the mast yet to take a closer look.
