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.

Parts for the 555 and other SL windlasses can be obtained here : Simpson Lawrence Yacht parts and spares
He is based in England but shipping is not bad - I have bought parts from him
