Fit this in place of the logs impeller unit if you leave the boat, this will keep the bore free from marine growth.
Wireless Wind Masthead Unit & Data Box
The wireless masthead transmitter outputs NMEA 0183 wind speed and direction data via its paired receiver box. It is powered by an internal battery which is charged from ambient light using a small solar panel. A few dull days will not affect performance. When fully charged, it is capable of two thousand hours of full operation in total darkness. The masthead transmitter sends data wirelessly to the base unit, which is powered by the vessel’s 12 Volt supply, the base unit receives wind speed and direction data from the masthead transmitter and sends it to a Clipper Wind display or any other compatible NMEA display unit.
- Wireless wind speed and direction data to any compatible NMEA display
- Easy installation with mast in place – no wires to run down
- Simple masthead alignment through base unit
- Light mast unit weight – 190 grams
Tactical Wind Mast Sensor (NMEA 0183 Output)
A high performance system that sends NMEA wind speed and direction data 10 times a second.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind mast sensor is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence. Supplied as standard to Clipper, Target and Cruiser V2 wind systems.
NOTE – This 3 wire NMEA mast unit is not compatible with earlier 5 wire analogue Clipper, Target or Cruiser wind systems. The earlier analogue mast sensor is available on the spare parts page.
- Mast transmitter supplied with 20 metres of cable
- NMEA 0183 4800 Baud data sentence MWV – update rate = 10 per second
- Wind speed 0 to 99.9 Kts
- Wind direction 0 to 360 degrees
- Supply voltage nominal 12 Volts
- Wind sensor supply current 9mA
H Vector Navtex Antenna
Conventional navtex antennas respond to the electrical component associated with the navtex radio signal. They usually perform well at sea where electrical interference is low but can sometimes be overwhelmed with interference especially when in harbour and connected to shore power.
In most small craft the electrical system acts as an effective ground for the antenna but it can also be a source of interference conducted from other electrical equipment on board. Electrical interference can result in poor reception especially in a marina where the ambient level is high or at sea when poorly suppressed electrical equipment is in use.
The omnidirectional H-Vector antenna is not sensitive to electric fields but to the magnetic component of the navtex signal. As a result it is less sensitive to locally generated interference and, as it does not need a ground, it is not affected by conducted ground interference whether in harbour or at sea.
The net result is that, under adverse conditions, the H-Vector antenna can deliver a significant improvement to navtex reception. The mushroom shaped antenna is compatible with the Clipper navtex, series 2 Target navtex and with the navtex engine. It can be mounted on a cabin roof or rail mounted using an appropriate threaded antenna base.
I am delighted with our new antenna. Our Navtex , normally somnolent in the marina, has burst into life!
Someone asked me recently – why bother with Navtex? My answer was simple. Last year a gale blew up suddenly on the Turkish Aegean coast. The Navtex transmitter at Izmir issued an urgent gale warning out of ‘normal hours’ and it was the only service to do so! For example there was nothing about this gale on PredictWind on our WiFi.
Now had a full month on the boat in Turkey cruising around and am even more delighted than ever with the new antenna!

AIS RADAR SART UPGRADE CHIP
This ‘do it yourself’ install chip will enhance your AIS Radar by adding the latest SART function. If a SART (search and rescue transponder) transmission is received the AIS Radar will sound an alarm in the SOS tone. The zoom range is also enhanced by zooming right down to 0.125 nautical miles for easier location of the SART beacon/MOB. Additionally a course over ground pointer can be activated by the user which appears if your vessel is moving at 2 knots or more, this greatly simplifies the interpretation of targets on the screen relative to your own boats heading.
