    I have a deposit on a Monitor, but after talking with folks on CF, I may go with a Norvane cuz:
    cheaper by half
    lighter, good thing on a WS28
    has a good reputation

    Only thing is no one has been able to get ahold of anyone at Norvane.

    Anyone have or use one or know anything about them?

    Hi Sean, glad to hear about you taking off and going for it .  Anyway to answer your question , no I have not used a Norvane . But I think windvanes are really cool on a cruising boat . I wonder why Norvane won't answer . they seem to have a nice website. I have never talked to Scanmar ,but  I hear people  like them . I would go with the Monitor , just for the fact that Scanmar is good and the Monitor has been refined over the years . Just my 2cents. Good luck !

    My money is with the South Atlantic S-440.  It seems very simple, and half the price of the Monitor as well.  They are very responsive too.
