Sailboat Navigation Continues to Evolve
Welcome to all of the new users. It is fall up north now, so a good time to cover product refinements that were made and tested over the summer.
The SailTimer Wind Instrument RB™
is solar-powered and wireless, so there are no wires to install down the mast. It has an ingenious design with the battery used as a counterbalance in the nose cone. The electronics in the tail are sealed, but a magnet on the wind cups reaches through the tail shell on each revolution to indicate wind speed.
This is the only masthead anemometer designed for sailboats, remaining equally accurate when sailing along heeled over. Since it is wireless, you can even raise it without climbing or lowering mast. It can transmit on Bluetooth to the phone/tablet you already have, and has our Air Link
accessory for getting the wireless data into NMEA wired networks.
With the vertical design, we have never had a single report of seabird damage to any model of SailTimer Wind Instrument™. But it does come with a comprehensive 2-year warranty. As you can see on the order page
, it has the lowest cost and best features
, and even has an option for $26.99/month payments. Ships in about 2 days.
