Well...........THIS is going to be our windlass ( to haul the anchors and help mooring) This was originally a single gypsy with a single warping drum.Now all the machine shop work has been done, a new shaft for two gypsies and warping drums.Some more "small" workshop mods to be done,some holes re-drilled and tapped and new bolts fitted.Re- assembly and a re-paint,the modifcation to add a hydraulic motor, will complete a very expensive ( bought new) piece of equipment.

Yes - it WILL come together!!

One of the two chain gypsies, .warping drum and clutch control

The base with the old paint cleaned off and new gypsy pawl and shaft.
