    Dear Leslie, 

    Thanks for your interest in the CapeHorn Self-Steering.

    The group purchase discount applies when all the gears are the same, since it costs less to fabricate a number of identical gears at the same time.  A few Bristol Channel Cutter owners joined the previous group purchase initiated by Westsail owners because both boats use the sameToucana model, only the length of the mounting arms was different on account of a different height of boomkin above waterline.  There were 23 orders in all, and we gave a 25% discount.  

    Our normal discount for 3 identical gears (or more) is 15%, 20% for 8 and 25% for 15 or more. 

    There is no form to fill, as long as owners mention the group purchase and we receive the minimum number of orders, confirmed with a $500. deposit.  Balance is not due until the gear is ready for delivery.

    Naturally, we will not be able to deliver discounted orders until after the usual rush of orders in Spring, as we have to complete orders who pay the whole amount ahead of others.  We could not deliever those discounted gears until the end of July, as my partner Eric, who builds the gears, has decided to take a 3 week vacation at the beginning of July, his first vacation in more than 5 years.

    I hope this answers your questions.  If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to call.  I just spoke over the phone to Will, telling him essentially this same thing.

    Fair wind,

    We are members of the Westsail Owners Association and are interested in pulling together a group buy for a discount on the Cape Horn wind vanes. I understand that Aaron Norland pulled this together in the past and it was a successful purchase. Is this something you are interested in offering us again?

    We have 8 persons (not all Westsail owners) who are interested and would like to know how high a discount you can offer us. I can give you a call next week if it's easier to talk on the phone but here are our general questions:

    How much of a deposit would you like from each person?

    At what points do the discount rates break? For example, 8 people = X% discount but 10 people = X% discount and 20 people = X% discount.

    Is there a particular form I should have everyone fill out?

    Please let me know, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    We have five people ready to send a deposit for a "Toucana" model. We have one person wanting a Spray. A few people don't know the model they want.

    Three more Toucanas and we qualify for the 20% discount. I think we should submit the order at number 8 rather than wait for a possible 15 orders for 25%. Any thoughts?

    We need two more orders for the "Spray" model to qualify for 15% discount. C'mon W42 and W43ers, don't leave your brother hangin! 

    If you need self steering, now's your chance. It may be a very long time before you get another shot at this.

    We have five Toucanas and two Sprays. If we can get three more Toucanas, everyone can get 20% off, and one more Spray will give that group 15% off. Still waiting to hear from a few people. If you are interested in either model, please email me at lesliebosch@gmail.com.

    I think if we submit our orders at 8 and the numbers go up to the next level for the bigger discount before the production is done I'm sure Yves would honor the lower price. But I'd get it in writing.

    If you email Yves at Cape Horn, you may still be able to participate in this group buy. I believe he said they wouldn't begin production of the discounted windvanes until July so have your 500 dollar deposit ready.
