I don''t own a wind pilot yet but I''m in the market for one and I''m leaning toward the pacific. The Simplicity of the vane is what has impressed me. Hope this helps. Rich

We have a 1970 Ericson 32 with a deck stepped mast. After 9 years of non use, we purchased the boat and replaced all of the rigging. After tuning the mast and sailing in 35 knot winds, we came back to the dock and noted that the bulkhead door, which is hinged on the slightly offset mast (deck) to keel compression post did not close, with an apparent offset of 1/2 inch on the latch side. We are the apparent victim of mast compression. I would appreciate information on others who have had this problem and their succesful cures.

We are considering installing a windvane on our Mason 44 to suppliment our Robertson autopilot. We are vacillating between a Monitor and Windpilot Pacific Plus. Any one have experience and opinions? Would appreciate some input. Thanks
