Pearson Ensign 22 - Wind Indicator
« on: December 18, 2022, 09:22:31 PM »
I need to purchase a new Wind Indicator and mount it to the top of the mast. Does anyone have a recommendation and from which source I can buy it. I do not know how to mount it at the top of the mast but will try and find out how.

The Davis Windex has been a staple choice among sailors for ages. For the Ensign, I would recommend the Windex-15:

https://windexdevelopment.com/shop/products/windex-15/

https://www.amazon.com/Windex-Davis-15-Wind-Vane/dp/B00TLEX5SA/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1W4KPY5KG42E0&keywords=windex+wind+vane&qid=1671638281&sprefix=windex+wind+vane%2Caps%2C96&sr=8-2

It mounts via a vertical stud on the base socket.  You will have to either drill and tap a matching hole in the masthead fitting, or attach some sort of horizontal flat bracket with a mounting hole, and attach the windex there with a locknut.
