V34 - Aries - self steering gear

Hi folks,
Not only do I have an Monitor wind vane servo pendulum self-steering gear (not fitted yet), I now also have a very nice Danish built version of the trusty Aries version.

I am weighing up the pros and cons of both (both great items of equipment), but will decide which to fit to my V34 within the next month or so and sell the remaining one.

I haven't been able to find any photos of a V34 with an Aries fitted, but have plenty of detail on the Monitor being fitted (including engineering drawings to from Scanmar showing the exact dimensions and tubes/fittings).

Would anyone have any photos or reference material which shows the Aries mounted to a V34?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Charlie.

Well, I decided to keep the Monitor and sell the Aries. It has been sold now and will be installed on a very nice Nicholson 31. I have the Monitor totally stripped down, piece parts/assemblies polished and am awaiting the delivery of new roller bearings, sheave blocks and several piece parts including mounting tubes from Scanmar in California. An inexpensive hobby. :-)
