Collection only please, from Selsey, near Chichester, asap

This is very much in need of some TLC, so please don't just come and collect it and expect to have a working windvane!

Think this is a very early "Flemming" glavanised steel windvane (so I have been told - but they weren't 100% sure)

Servo Pendulum type

Elderly windvane, previously fitted to yacht which did circumnavigation in the 70's.

Has been laying unloved since return of yacht. In need of some TLC, some welding and painting.

Seems to be mostly galvanised steel with GRP rudder.

Comes with two vanes

Heavy

Comes with name "Erb", though is probably ok to rename a windvane ;-)

This is a Gunning wind vane, the Fleming was a later stainless steel affair, very beautiful, and made in New Zealand from the 1980s. Gunnings had a very good reputation for robust efficiency

Aha :-) Thank you very much for solving that uncertainty!
