Our Friendship Sloop/Sailboat Weathervane comes ready to fit any of or cupolas we sell. To mount the copper 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 round 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 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.
Our Friendship Sloop/Sailboat Weathervane is made here in Eddington Maine by hand hammering it into a form using 16oz copper/ 24 gauge. This weathervane is real copper and will turn brown, black and then a green patina over time. If you choose to keep the weathervane shiny, you can always apply a clear coat of exterior poly urethane over the sloop weathervane figure and weathervane parts to keep it from changing. Our main Weathervane Retail Shop is located in Trenton Maine on route 3 headed towards Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Made in the Maine.
Weathervane Figure - Made in the USA.
For Patina Copper -- Patina acid is applied via spray/brush to accelerate the aging process. Applied patina look will vary on each weathervane.
