What is this Windlass?

1958 De Vries 40 foot ketch. Trying to identify the windlass (original I think). Has Guindeau RIP embossed on it. No other docs. Anyone know the manufacturer or where I could get spares, or any info in general . Thank you for your time.

Re: What is this windlass?

Are there any more words on it. Guindeau is french for windlass.

In that case I guess Guindeau RIP means the windlass is dead lol.

Re: What is this Windlass?

"R.I.P. de la Ste. SGDC" If you can translate that from the French into English, you will learn more about your windlass. I'm sorry, but my French does not extend to working out abbreviations. Maybe someone else can help.

It looks a nice, sturdy bronze unit.

Thank you all for the replies. It's good to be part of the forum. Love the RIP comment, just what I thought when it jammed! I'll keep digging.

Re: What is this Windlass?

Just take it off your boat and take it apart. You probably will see what part is damaged.... The spareparts will be available at a machinefactory
