Re: Repairing My Maxwell-Nilsson Windlass
Very nice write up Mike!
+1 for Nillson. I had a V1000 as well and they had all the parts I needed to repair the windlass. The problem I had was that there were so many broken parts that the cost was going to be over 50% of the cost of a new windlass. I decided that it was better to buy an all new windlass. So that is what I did. I bought from Nilsson and it has worked great.
Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
