1958 De Vries 40 foot ketch. Trying to identify the windlass (original I think). Has Guindeau RIP embossed on it. No other docs. Anyone know the manufacturer or where I could get spares, or any info in general . Thank you for your time.
"R.I.P. de la Ste. SGDC" If you can translate that from the French into English, you will learn more about your windlass. I'm sorry, but my French does not extend to working out abbreviations. Maybe someone else can help.
