Wanted: Simpson Lawrence Man Windlass

The Muir Neptune windlass on my PS 34 is on its last legs. I am not really excited about an electric and would like to find an SL 555 windlass with a 5/16 gypsy.

Are you getting ready to replace your SL555 or do you know someone who is?

I understand the virtues of a manual but if you decide to go electric, I recommend Ideal IDEAL WINDLASS COMPANY. Decent prices too - talk to the owner, Cliff.

I installed mine a couple years ago for 175 foot of 5/16 chain. The 00 gauge wire was easily run up in the inside of the gunwale and solenoid is easily hidden on the backside of the dry locker between the V and anchor well.

Their units are solidly built and powerful enough to kedge the boat off a grounding if needed.

I can never get this upload to work from my Mac but I put a few pictures here at google.

I have seen SL 555's on Ebay occassionally.You have to keep checking and I saw one on Craigslist about a year ago.
Good luck,
