I removed the Aries Windvane from my Westsail 32 when I purchased it, and I won't be using it or putting it back on the boat. I don't think that it was ever used once as the wooden part of the vane is still in its original packaging. I have no idea when it was originally purchased or it if works, but nothing looks wrong with it. I have never used one, so I'm not really in a position to opine about it. If it looks good to you, let me know if you're interested in it. I'm in no rush to sell it, so I'll keep this ad up for as long as I keep it sitting in my garage. I'll entertain offers below asking price.
