Custom Work for Yachts and Boats - Bronze Fabrication
|Now this one has all the bells and whistles. Starting with a 5"
diameter Appledore reefing gear, we added a couple of 8" mastbands,
which had to be fabricated because the mast was oval and slightly conical
(!), plus some belay pins, a spinnaker pole stowage - using one of the
standard spar end fittings. Oh yes and the customer wanted a couple
of reefing handles in bronze
So here you have custom castings, married to standard castings and fabrication.
|At the other end of the scale, one customer had his "show-off fast alongside" wrecked when the gooseneck broke on his RNSA 14' dinghy and he went full tilt into the pontoon. Using his old pin, a revised and strengthened gooseneck was fabricated. Now he can show off with impunity!|
|Not quite sure of the background to this one, but the net
result was that the mast, much of the rigging and the spreader fitting
(shown here, above) of a BB11 were broken after a collision.
The new version is shown in the lower picture, apart from anything else, stronger than the original, and not much heavier. We also did the replacement rigging.
|Another two "before and after" jobs - with no prizes for guessing which!|
|Three more bits of Golant gaffery, the mastband, stemhead roller and tabernacle respectively|
|A couple of pieces done for the Norfolk Boatyard, the Gypsy stemhead, and the anchor stowage for the Smuggler|
|Finally a couple of horses, and a pinrail for you|
