The winter storms deprived us of sailing opportunities and also one wind indicator from the top of my mast. Been buying one every two seasons or so, this year no more – I’m going to make my own. This looks like a good place to start. Will post photo of my finished DIY Wind Indicator when complete.
The small clam cleat is proving a bit more of a tricky proposition as the nose of the pop rivet gun will not reach into the cleat to allow me to rivet the cleat to the mast! To overcome this I was advised my the friendly team at SuperSpars.com who manufactured the mast to use small nuts or washers on the rivet mandrel for the standard nozzle to pull against. This will work for the lower attachment location but not for the other where I will have to use a stainless steel self tapping screw.
