Subject: Simpson Lawrence Windlass

Hello All,
I'm having a little difficulty with clutch disc's slipping on my Simpson Lawrence windlass. They appear to be in good shape. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks.

1973 M36 Hull #9 "Gran Mariner"

Is the brake backing off, or is the piece that the brake tightens onto worn? I rebuilt mine with it started slipping, it just appeared to be wear on mine. It is from the late 70s.

The brake is not backing off. And the pieces that tighten do not seem to be worn. There seems plenty of the brake left. It seems that there is not enough bite when I am retrieving the anchor and there is some slipping . What do you think? Where did you get parts?
