I have a Plath bronze manual windlass
(similar to the ABI windlass) for sale
in Olympia, WA. It comes with the hawsepipe and cover. It is a very reliable double action windlass
that does not rely on electricity and needs almost no maintenance
. Asking $500, but you will need to pick it up in Olympia as it is quite heavy. You can find the specs on the website for RC PLATH, www.rcplathcompany.com...it
is the model 7 with the rope gypsy
and a wildcat that fits 5/16" BBB chain. For an extra $100, I will sell 120 feet of that chain with the windlass
. I do not have the handle, but the handle is easy to fabricate and I suggest you do so so that you can make a stainless one that is longer than the standard handle (which is steel).
is from the RC PLATH website, but mine has been used for 4 years, and has a nice green patina all over it now. It works very reliably and easily.
