KEEFE Windlass

I have just finished working on my "monster" Keefe windlass. I am looking for anyone who might have the manual or any info on this brand of windlass. It has a Boston Gear-series 200 gearbox and a deckplate that measures about 12x12 and a 8" gypsy. It is on my 1980 Sunward and is a workhorse...but its one of the few parts on my boat I don''t have and cannot find info on. Any Help???

Susurra, Ondro posted that in 2005.

Since then, he sold the boat, and changed his life.

He now works at JFK airport, with an orange sheet around his shoulders, and shaved his head.

Sorry about that. But you can try calling him at 1 560 332 4741.

Thanks

Did you find the manual to the Keefe windlass. I do have a copy of the manual. Let me know if you still need it.

Keefe Windlass

I was just searching on Keefe windlass and saw your post saying you had a manual. Any chance I could get a copy? I have a Keefe on the bow of my Force 50 and would love to know what I was getting into before I open it up.
