Lofrans Cayman 88 housing

Hi. I am looking for a new or nice second hand Lofrans Cayman 88 windlass housing. The internals and gypsy of my unit are in excellent shape, but the housing has had sea water trapped between the base and the rubber gasket that sits on the bulkhead.
Our local supplier said that Lofrans have no stock of housings and Lofrans workers have been in lockdown like everyone else.
I have been advised to leave the rubber base gasket out of the refit so that the water drains away.
Anyone holding a housing that is superfluous to your needs. I am happy to buy from anywhere on the planet.

Re: Lofrans Cayman 88 housing

Hi. It appears I contacted what I thought was the Australian distributor, but turned out to be a sub distributor. Yesterday I decided to email Lofrans in Italy and they got back to me later the same day. They said I should contact their Australian distributor as they have stock of the housings and all other parts and products. I received an email directly from the Australian distributor this morning with a quote for the bare housing. Lofrans had sent my email enquirey to the distributor and the Aust distributor sent me the quote. Professionalism at its finest.
