“Too good to be true” windlass deal?

I’ve got the boat (28’ S2) in the back yard for a re-fit b4 heading off on a coastal cruising adventure next spring (not working on it today as it’s 22 below zero!) and even though I’m a great believer in the K.I.S.S. principle, it appears they can’t give away the Lewmar V1 windlass cheap enough.
List for $2300, I’ve found it for as low as a few hundred bucks. I’ve got a lot of homework to do before pulling the trigger, but this is sure looking good to a guy born in the Truman administration who’ll be doing a lot of anchoring whilst single handing. Talk to me guys.
