Raymarine ST60

Anyone have experience w/ the Rotavecta option on the ST60? Any idea why it is recommended for powerboats and not sailboats?

I am looking at buying one used and have some reservations.

thanks

Looks like a shorter transducer cable and with a powerboat you don''t need it to be mounted offset from the mast but probably need added height.

You really don''t need extra heigth to mount a wind indicator on top of an already high mast. It''s just a modified mounting system more than an fundemental transducer design difference. You would do better with a sailboat designed transducer mounting so it is out in front of the mast.

The issue with a Rotavecta is that it''s not going to give you the same accuracy in terms of wind direction that the vane transducer will. So for powerboaters the Rotavecta is considered good enough, but generally it is thought sailboaters want as close as they can come to dead on accuracy regarding wind direction. For more information you might want to touch base with a Raymarine tech at 800-539-5539.
