Our L30 Ratchet Windlass, installed on 'Polly', built by David Moss.

We make ratchet windlasses in a range of sizes and configurations, from the L30 above, through to the L60, for use with vessels up to 100 tons displacement. To see an original old version ratchet windlass operating, one we restored,  visit:
