Product Features:

Hand made in England by the expert craftsmen at Davey & Company, using techniques that haven't changed much in over 100 years.

Manufactured from high tensile Silicon Aluminum Bronze, the bodies are forged and the forks are machined from solid bar stock for extra strength.

Stainless steel clevis pins come standard, although bronze pins can be special ordered.

These rigging screws exceed the breaking loads of most modern high strength wire ropes, yet they are equally suited to more traditional materials.

Supplied in a polished bronze finish, these fine hardware pieces have the strength and beauty to suit all types of craft.

Bronze is a favored material to use for traditional boat fittings because it takes casting, machining, and polishing very well, is relatively strong and incredibly resistant to salt water.

While bronze is often more expensive initially than other marine grade materials, this expense is easily recovered through the high strength and long life bronze provides.

It is very important that the correct mounting hardware is used to attach each fitting to your boat.

In the rigorous marine environment it is not enough that the fastenings themselves are of marine quality, they must also be close in the Galvanic Series to the metal the fitting is made from.

If they are not similar, the less noble metal will corrode.

The following information shows the combinations that are suitable and those that are not.

For bronze fittings, silicon bronze or stainless steel fasteners are suitable, brass fasteners are not suitable.

For brass fittings, brass or silicon bronze fasteners are suitable, stainless steel is not suitable.

In addition to matching the proper materials, it is also important to use the appropriate type of fastener.

In most cases, fittings that will take a heavy prolonged or snatch load should be bolted rather than screwed, with reinforcing pads underneath to spread the load.
Sold individually.

Available in several sizes.

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.
