Since this unique hardware is not mass produced we sometimes experience slight delivery delays. While we strive to maintain a sizable inventory we appreciate your patience in this regard.

People sometimes ask how our green boat gear can be classified as truly "green"? After all, there is no such thing as organic steel, brass, or aluminum.
Like most things on greenboatstuff.com, we try to envision the impact our gear has on the world around us as it is made, used, and ultimately lost or discarded.
In addition, we believe a product you only have to buy once in your lifetime is much greener than a cheaper version you will replace countless times.
With this in mind we offer an assortment of high quality products that are designed for you to pass on to the next generation.
You won't find cheap, disposable stuff here, just the best boat gear we can find that makes a minimal impact on the environment.
In every case, we try to carry boat gear made and finished with materials that do as little harm as possible.
As a result we avoid chrome, nickel and zinc plated items due to the impact the plating process often has on the environment.
The same goes for chemical-based painted items, plastics, and other synthetics.
While natural fibers, wood, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, bronze, and the other materials we prefer to carry are not always entirely earth-friendly, we believe they represent the best choices available at this time.
