KEEFE Anchor Windlass Parts

Hi,

I am in the process of rebuilding my KEEFE Series B Electric Horizontal, Anchor Windlass. Does anyone know of a source for parts? Since they are no longer in business I may be looking at a used unit to Cannibalize for parts.

This was new equipment on a late 70's 40'er.

Thanks, Greg

keefe anchor windlass

I saw your inquiry for parts needed for a Keefe anchor windlass. Though it's been quite some time since you posted, and you may have found a source or taken another path, I have a unit that I removed from a boat I bought a few months ago. It has a seized 120vac motor but all the other parts appear in salvageable condition.
If you are still looking for parts, pls contact me.

Keefe windlass

gnoynik, I was wondering if you still have you windlass and if you might have a manual to it. I just bought a Freya 39 which has a Keefe and would like to keep it on there. Thanks.

ebrown,
Yes I still have it but will be scrapping it soon. No, I don't have a manual on it.

What kind of condition is it in, other than the seized motor.

Looks in "decent " condition. Gypsy and sprocket are intact. Internals unknown as I don't have time , use nor interest in finding out. Gypsy head is 7" dia by 3" w, sprocket is 6" dia by 2" w. Looks like it uses 3/8 chain. Unit is 22"L x 24"W x 17" H.

Keefe windlass parts.

Balmar (the alternator people) purchased Keefe back in the late 80s. They still have a very limited number of parts for some of the Keefe windlasses. You might want to inquire. Great people to deal with.
