Wanted: Lofrans Royal Gypsy
A friend of mine is*going from 3/8 to 5/16 chain and needs to change the chain wheel on his Lofrans Royal. He is looking for a (Imtra number) LWP 814-5/16 HT. Any one have one lying around or a reasonable source? He will trade or sell his current gypsy for 3/8 HT and I have one for the same windlass for 3/8 BBB.
Now to answer the inevitable*question of*why he is moving to smaller chain.*He is*replacing 40' of 3/8 with 90' 5/16 which will give him essentially all chain for the area he plans to cruise. Less weight in the bow of his 38' sailboat.
