    Winch handle foundry marks

    Ariel list members,

    I found my winch handle in a box of gear from the prior owner.
    I had looked all over the boat for this item.
    Was I ever surprised when inspecting
    it to read in the casting,

    "MADE IN ALVISO BY HIPPIES"

    Okay is this something someone else has seen?

    Or is this a rare item.

    I believe there were "afermarket" handle suppliers at one time.
