Who makes a windlass with a 3/8 BBB gypsy??

My nilsson 1000 broke due to 35 yrs hard service and I am now replacing it. The problem I am running into is finding a maker that still has BBB as an option for the chainwheel. I could just buy 300 ' of HT I suppose , but the price in Grenada is 22.00 a ft ECD which equates to about 2450.00USD This makes it waaaaaay out of my range. Does anyone know of a windlass manufacturer that can supply a 3/8 BBB gypsy? I can tell you that Lofrans does not.

Oh Yea My boat is a 44' 36000 lb monohull.

I was considering the lewmar V3
Lofrans project 1500x3
maxwell vwc 2200
Nilsson 2200

Any info would be great !
Thanks , Kevin.
