Hydrovane - Who Has One?
« on: October 01, 2021, 12:47:11 PM »

There’s a picture of a C34 MkII with a a Hydrovane fitted on Hydrovane’s website. So I know it can be done. Does anyone here have one fitted? If so, what’s your opinion of it?

I’m looking for something with its own rudder to act as a back up. Hydrovane looks rock solid but heavy!

You might try contacting MWBFOTO@GMAIL.COM
She sailed a 1988 C34 to Hawaii from San Fran single-handed in the Pacific Cup regatta in 2016(?). I believe she had a Hydrovane? Her boat was dropped and destroyed by Matson Lines shipping at the pier while being transported back to CA.  She was subsequently parting out salvaged pieces from the “wreck” on our website.
See below. Don’t know if her email is still current.
