Kevin Donahue and Marilyn Falconer

During the height of the Taiwan boat building days in the 1980's there where some chain driven look-a-likes of the Simpson Lawrence 555 Seatiger windlass coming to North America from Taiwan. It's possible you may have one of those units, or as Gary mentioned you might have a 510 Hyspeed. Inspite of its name the 510 Hyspeed has only one operating position for the lever. The 555 and the chain driven look-a-likes had two positions, one for high gear and one for low gear.
