This Simpson Lawrence Sea Tiger 555 is in good working condition. It includes the RCB70 (combination chain + rope) gypsy, steel handle and instruction manual. The ID plate says this is # 886012.
Price: $500 + shipping
Location: Long Beach, California
The RB70 gypsy is designed to be used with:
American BBB 3/8"
Hi Test 3/8"
Most European 10 mm
S-L 0058004 / 0058202 9.5 mm
I have been using this with short link 5/16" G30 and 9/16 nylon rode, it worked great with no hangs. Given that short link G30 isn't particularly common, I would consider selling or trading the chain as well (75-feet).
I've decided to sell this windlass to fundraise for my upcoming trip...I can use the workout anyway. If I were taking it offshore I'd consider rebuilding it (mostly for the sake of posterity), but has worked for me as is.
