I've been looking for a new windlass
for our Choey Lee Midshipman. Our 50 year old manual is pretty much worn out. I had a Sea tiger
555 on our previous boat and wanted to find one for this one. It's a great windlass
. My son, at age 10, could retrieve our 60 CQR
. I paid about $1200 for that one.
I guess they don't make them anymore. Imagine my surprise when I was searching with a search program and found an expired ad for one on the west coast
. Fortunately, the first line of the ad had the phone
number in it even though the real ad had expired. Imagine my bigger surprise when I found nobody ever called him during the 2 months while the ad was active.
And then, to find it was new in the box for $450?
It's now gone from the west coast
and it'll be on our midshipman soon.
You guys need to watch the ads closer!
