    Looking for Muir cougar HE 770 parts WTB-gctid802838

    I have a a Muir cougar HE770 and I'm looking for a new or good used 1/4 " HT chain size Gypsy / chain wheel.

    I have a 3/8" gypsy but I would like a 1/4" HT gypsy.

    Does anyone have one they want to part with? Sell or trade?

    I have 300 feet of new 1/4Ht chain I can't use. Buying a new gypsy or new 3/8 chain is a toss up but I can get more 1/4" in the locker. Think I want a different gypsy.

    Anyone have any ideas or have one they want to part with? A long shot but thought I would ask.

    Probably no help, but I have a spare gypsy for a Muir Cougar HR1200 for 5/15" BBB.

      I appreciate that but I want to use the 300 ft of 1/4 chain I have.

      Not to spill the beans but the gypsy alone new sells for almost $1000 after tax. However the chain sells for almost $5 a foot. It's almost a toss up cost wise. I could buy new chain to fit what I have but I can get more 1/4 in the locker.

      I was hoping to find a good used one would solve my problem.

      The Muir cougar windlass (which came stock from bayliner) cost new almost $5000. Trying to figure out why they are 5 times the cost of others but bayliner didn't cheap out like they are always accused of.

        I fully understand the toss up on the cost of chain vs gypsy.

        I went thru the same thing when I was considering making a change to my chain.

        Me personally, I prefer larger, heavier chain over smaller, higher strength chain.

        Its rare (but has probably happened once) that you hear about chain breaking.

        Its more common you hear about anchor dragging when lighter chain raises off the bottom and pulls the anchor out.

        To me, I want to get the most weight of chain laying on the bottom.

        Sometimes in crowded anchorages, you're limited on scope, so that heavier chain weight comes in handy.
