Does anyone recognise this windlass?

I'm trying to identify the windlass installed on my new boat. There are no names or numbers visible on the outside. It Is protected by a 135A breaker, so it's likely in the 1000-1500w range. It was installed by past owners some time in the early 90's in Seattle.

I'd like to find if replacement parts for the gypsy clutch are available, and if it has a reversible motor. Right now it's just one direction.

Thanks in advance!

Looks very much like a Plath windlass, company is still in business:

Model 9 A/B in the second catalog looks close

It sure does! Never heard of that company before but good to know they still exist. I've sent them an email to see if the parts I need are available. Thanks Dirk.
