Sailomat 3040 help requested

Hi all;

Fedex just delivered our new to us Sailomat 3040 windvane. Quite a hefty unit! I have no instructions on installation, operation or maintenance. If you can help at all with any of these three subjects, please let me know!!!

PS - I sent an email to Sailomat requesting the same.

I have been emailing Sailomat - they are going to send me a manual (for $50). A partial disassembly of the unit revealed a few parts that need replaced, and two parts, the counter balance weight and arm, that are missing.

If anyone has parts (Sailomat did not have the ones I need) let me know. If not, then I am going to have to visit a machine shop.

Hi there- also have a 30-40 Sailomat- although your post about this is several years old, you said that you were getting an instruction/installation manual from the manufacturer- IF you did get one and still have this would you be willing to send me a copy? I would of course cover all costs and expenses. My boat is in Antigua in the Caribbean, but could send you an address in USA or the UK to post it to. SirPhil.

Send a message via Yahoo to dacap06
That's odd! The message I just posted seems to have disappeared. OK, here's the information again.

First, have you tried contacting Sailomat? They're still in business and might be able to reproduce an old manual for you.

Secondly, I found a thread over at the Cruisers' Forum where a fellow named Peter Schellekens says he has a manual and offered to help the original poster. You might want to send him and e-mail. You can find the 3040 thread here.
