Aries Wind Vane

The Aries windvane servo blade had developed a habit of flipping up at sea. It didn’t seam to be seating home properly. I consulted Peter at Aries who suggested I check the seating washer.

Water had got under the washer and some corrosion had developed. This pushed the washer out slightly preventing the blade from seating fully. I removed the washer cleaned everything and epoxied the washer back in place. Thereafter the blade seated perfectly.

Raised washer preventing servo blade from seating home fullly.

Offending washer removed.
