SL 555 Windlass Wanted/also Info

My Muir Neptune man windlass is on its last legs. I am not very excited about the electric alternative - the Muir is adequate when it works. Unfortunately, Muir has chosen not to support its installed base with parts. Doesn't say much for the company, does it?

If anyone out there has a Simpson Lawrence SL 555 available, I would be very interested in purchasing it. Or, perhaps you know someone who has one available?

Also, I would be interested to hear from any current SL555 owner with info on S-L parts and support. I understand that Lewmar is still offering parts. Are they readily available and is there tech support available? Would sincerely appreciate any input.
