Anchor windlass for R34

Renovation or replacement?
Posted: 7 Sep 2010 - By: Michael Smith
Williwaw has a manual, horizontal axis windlass that may well have been fitted from new in 1973. It was made by a firm called Moyle, who no longer exist, and the model name is Mustang. I think I have only used it twice in 15 years and have just discovered that it no longer works. Does anyone know the make/model and how to strip and renovate it? For the next couple of seasons, I shall be in deeper and windier waters and may have more need of a windlass.

Alternatively, can anyone who has fitted a manual or electric windlass to a R31-34 offer advice on the choice of model and installation issues?
