I was very impressed by the job done on ALOHA, an older SM.  Steve is a member of this parish and should see this soon.

For those of you who have more experiences with Amel's of different vintages... are there fitting differences between the Leroy Somer and Bonfiglioli gearboxes used on the Mainmast furling system? 

Are they interchangeable?  Interchangeable with modifications?  Or just too different to try?
