Re: Windlass

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Do a search for ABI Gypsy using the search engine that pops up when you first enter the forum and you might come up with an answer. The bad news is that they are not made anymore and few people have any parts but the good news is there is a Portland Company that might be able to help you.
What size gypsy do you currently have?
kind regards,
