Do you know what is wrong with it?
Do you use it for Seatalk, or just NMEA?

One of these is burnt out. Pretty tricky soldering involved. I'll have to read the instructions to find out if it is NMEA

Thank you John. It was only this morning that I purchased a replacement Vane and cable from ebay. As I could not find anyone during the last 24 months I had been keeping an eye open on ebay and sure enough one came up this morning from a seller in Qld so I took no chances and purchased it straight away. I may yet avail myself of Mr Morphett's services by asking him to replace the broken sensor. That way I'll have two.
