To all who actually give a shat... Kittyhawk = little hawk MK2 in my previous post...FM
The cassette tape/yarn version is problably the most durable. I got so tired of replacing them that I completely bagged wind indicators. They are nice to have on light wind days though. I just got tired of replacing them after death rolls or damage durring rigging/transport. I've gotten so even on the Swift and leadmines, I'll just put a little string or yarn on the shrouds and call it good. I see windvanes as another thing to break and frustrate me because they fail to work.To all who actually give a shat... Kittyhawk = little hawk MK2 in my previous post...FM
take a little hawk or any of the other versions, so long as it has the attachement to go around the mast. Take the little arrow off so you just have the extending arm with the "L" at the end. Turn it upside down so the "L" is facing down. Tape a piece of casette tape to it. It is by far the most senstive and accurate indicator you can have, and it's invaluable if you sail the boats much at all.
WOW. You have shrouds on your Laser? Is that class legal? Boy I never had shrouds on my Laser so I never put yarn on them. :lol:Yeah, I use yarn telltales on the shrouds of my laser too. :lol:
Done the Laser way.Bent clothes hanger wire, electrical tape, and some yarn or cassette tape. total investment... I don't know $2?
