Except the Springs, they would need to be custom-made at a capital cost of $6000. I talked to him about it they were understandably not interested in pursuing it. they are a little grumpy towards ABI as this is actually a clone of one of their older windlasses rather than a modified SL555.


It is an ABI, tag is on the end of the rope drum.

Re: Solid Bronze Manual Windlass

I had this windlass on Jacaranda for an extended cruise thru the SP in the 90s. It is an ABI windlass that has an oil bath. Uses 90 weight gear oil and each shaft has orings on each end. Springs were a problem but am sure you could find similar springs using google.

I do remember not eating breakfast before departing from some lagoons in FP. With a depth of 70 and 240 of chain out I was completely knackered after cranking all that chain in. Whew!

The first day of using our Lighthouse 12V windlass i was like the Cheshire cat )

Regards
