Windlass Service Marsh Harbor Abacos

Hi Guys:

Can anyone refer me to a mechanic who can pull my Maxwell Windlass to replace the O ring and fill it will oil?

The oil is dripping from the seal and the only way to fill it is from the top after you pull it out. Crazy engineering but that's what it is and I'm nervous about the fluid level dropping below the site glass and being on the hook.

I would just keep filling with oil until you get back to the states.
