Our very large Clipper Sailboat Weathervane comes ready to fit any of our cupolas we sell, this big clipper sailboat weathervane is so large it is going to need a big barn cupola to hold it up. To mount the weathervane into one of our cupolas all you have to do it put the solid ¾”weathervane rod down through the top of the cupola and through an internal crossmember inside the roof of the cupola. Use a little caulking around the hole to seal the rod and cupola together.
Our larger cupolas have a clamp under the crossmember so that it can lock the rod in place under the cross member. If you are not using a cupola with our clipper ship weathervane then please check out our many types of brackets, stands and mounts on our mounts page. If an extended rod is needed to add more height or depth, please use a red thread locker such as Loctite or other brand.
