Other Thoughts: I just bought a sailboat that had three brand new Clipper instruments - wind (this product), speed and depth. The previous owner had installed them but had not completed the hook-up. I am reasonably handy and could have tackled the hook-up, but I decided to let the technician at the marina handle it. When he saw them he informed me that he'd never heard of Clipper, and wasn't confident working on them, so I started making calls. Nobody - and I mean NOBODY - had ever even heard of Clipper. See, they are made in England and may be very popular overseas, but in the US they appear to be an unknown brand. Not wanting to depend on instruments that cannot be serviced, I felt compelled to replace them.
