Website Maintenance December 2013
The Mister Vee website will be moved to a new server before the 21st of December.
We will try to keep disruptions to a minimum but the website may be missing or not fully functional at some times.
On the drawing board
Sometimes ideas need customer input.
Sometimes an idea needs a customer to launch.
This is where those ideas are presented.
Taking mounting of windvane self steering systems to an all new level
A windvane self steering system needs to be on the back of the boat.
Unfortunately, that spot is often occupied with lots of other stuff, making it hard to actually connect the system.
We are working on a mounting system that will change all that. If we can get it to work (which more or less means, can we actually make the parts that are vital to this system) it will lead to a new version of Y&B:
Anywhere in this case stands for where the system is attached to the boat.
If you need to bolt it to the boats deck, you can...
If you need to bolt it to the side of the boat, you can...
If you need to bolt it to the the bottom of the boat, you can...
...and still have the steering system itself located where it does its work best.
That is not to say that having it attached to the bottom of the boat is something we'd recommend, but if it actually is the only spot available and you are willing to take the risks and challenges...
Finally. A Wheel adapter for wheel steered boats.
This wheel adapter has already left the drawing board. It is based on a design that was tried a few years ago but at that time was difficult to manufacture.
A customers request (changing to a boat with wheel steering) revived the idea and this is the result.
A new vane base for Y&B
At Mister Vee we keep on the lookout for new solutions to customers problems in mounting self steering. One of the problems we'd like to solve is to mount the system slightly above a transom hung rudder, bringing it closer to the cockpit for easier operation.
This vane base opens up many new mounting possibilities. This vane base could be custom made in different configurations and sizes.
But also important, this one manufactured piece replaces 15 (!) other manufactured parts plus 8 standard parts, not even counting fasteners, and it makes assembly much easier at the same time!
