The Kayalu ParkerMount has a fixed base and all the hardware ready for integration with the Windex 10.
The base of this mount is a standard RAM Mounts marine-grade aluminum ball, and can be affixed to any surface with stainless steel bolts and nylon-insert locknuts, included. We also supply a steel drill bit properly sized for mounting the base on your deck surface.
The Windex 10 Sport wind vane is sold separately, available directly from Davis Instruments (click here), Amazon (click here) and other authorized Davis resellers. The Windex wind vane features sapphire jewel suspension bearings, large fin/low inertia vanes and easy-to-read, fully adjustable tacking-tab systems for quick reference.
This mount includes stainless steel hardware required for integration with the standard off-the-shelf Windex 10 wind vane, including nylon-insert locknuts compatible with the Windex 10's glass-reinforced polycarbonate "J-Base" packaged with the Windex 10 kit.
Coupled to the base of this ParkerMount is a removable stainless steel and marine-grade aluminum Kayalu Toughbar® extension arm. At the top of the arm is a second high-strength composite coupler and marine-grade aluminum adaptor for bolting to the Windex 10.
With the ParkerMount, the Windex vane is extended 24" from the bottom of the base.
Or, with the vane tilted at any angle up to 90°, the mount provides adequate clearance for the vane to operate while extending the vane a full 10" up from the top of the coupler (itself 14" from the base).
Each of the Windex 10 mounts in our catalog is constructed using interchangeable RAM Mounts component parts, allowing you to remove the Davis 10 adaptor from the mount head if you want to temporarily use your Kayalu base to host another RAM "B" ball accessory such as a camera adaptor, GPS cradle or Kayalu lighting products.
The Windex 10 wind vane requires minor assembly. Attaching a Windex 10 wind vane to this mount also requires minor assembly. Tools required for assembly: pliers, flat head screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, drill (for installation of base).
