Default VDO wind sensor

If anyone on this group has old or maybe new wind sensors for vdo's wind
indicator system for sale, I would gladly buy one. I am also interested in
old VDO instruments (mainly wind instruments but also especially TRIM- and
LOG- instruments (Log sensors too).)

Or if someone knows where I can buy a new (also used) sensor cheaply, please
tell me. In Finland those simple things cost a lot - ~450e.

Our wind measuring system is old, about twenty years, but new wind sensors
can be used with old systems, too. Our system consists of wind speed
indicator , closed hauled and wind speed instrument.


Pyry, Finland

You'll be lucky to find a good one. I had these on my boat, and actually
found a tech who had a whole box of the old series (80s - early 90s) logs,
depth sounders & indicators. They are encapsulated in epoxy, so are
unserviceable. I took 4 sounders off him, and none worked. (they actually
all had the same fault code, and no, my transducer is good). It would be a
real lottery to find a good 2nd hand one.

VDOs current line IS expensive, but one of the best in quality from advice I
have received. You can get cheaper gear from Navman, which I think are made
in New Zealand. I have heard the quality is not too bad.
