Jack- since then all the Maxwell's seem to have gone to "short link" which is the high test. 3/8" BBB has 11 links per foot vs. 3/8" HT 9.8 links. I've talked to three different places now and they all seem to think that I would need to go to HT chain (which would double the cost vs.just buying a new windlass).

HyLyte- I'm going to try calling Maxwell directly, maybe they do offer a gypsy for the BBB, but I can't find where in any literature that says so. Thanks for the link:-))
