I have a Quick Antares
Capstan (they call it a vertical windlass). I need to pull it apart. The manaul tells me how to take the genny (gypsy) off and this i can do without issue. But how do I pull the shaft? There are shaft seals
at either end and the shaft has a keyway and a woodruff key, so the woodruf key can't pass the shaft seal
I'm reluctant to use force.'
I've tried youtube to see if there are nay vids - but nothing.
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by
