|Some time ago I got a quote for parts from Ideal to rebuild my V5C/BHW Windlass.
I was quoted the prices for part numbers V5C13 and 17 as approximately $200 each.
I have now tried to order those prices and am being told by Schaefer that the prices are $1048 each, as they are "new castings."
This is illegal as hell, and I suggest that everyone very carefully consider this when deciding on a windlass or your supplier for marine parts. If Schaefer is going to take advantage of me like this, and Ideal is going to charge such exhorbitant prices, then I think its clear that neither company wants to be "great again" and thus does NOT need our business.
