Birds on wind vane - Phantom154 - 06-26-17 08:59 AM

Ospreys like to perch right on top of the wind vane. The direction function no longer works, so I have to repair or replace the vane. How can I keep the birds off without upsetting the wind flow and accuracy? If the screw that held the vane cap on had a stiff wire post a couple inches long, that would probably work, as long as it didn't get bent.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Phantom154,

Raymarine does not offer any products which have been designed for the purpose of deterring birds from perching on wind instruments. You may want to consider seeking the advice from Forum which is specifically dedicated to sailing. Best wishes with your search for a solution.
