Lord Nelson 41 Bronze Parts

Does anyone a source for bronze parts for Lord Nelson 41 bronze parts? Especially need chocks, but interior hardware is needed as well.

If your Lord Nelson was made in the same yard as my Hans Christian, you may have parts that were duplicated from original ABI parts. I have been told that one of each part was sent to the yard where they duplicated them. I was able to get replacements from ABI that were nearly identical to the originals.

Hope this helps.

Lord Nelson Parts

Excellent tip. Thank you. We are rebuilding a Lord Nelson 41 that was sunk in hurricane Katrina! My customer wants that boat.

The previous owner of this particular vessel says that by happenstance he met the builder of the Lord Nelsons while cruising in the Carribean. Says the Lord Nelsons were actually built across the street from the Hans Christian plant. The Lord Nelson builder, who's name I cannot remember started as a partner in the Hans Christian plant, but split and started his own boat yard.

We used to have a Lord Nelson 35 hull # 6 which was built in 1985.
It was built in the Ocean Eagle yard by Tommy Chen.
Last I heard, (quite awhile ago) Tommy was in Vancouver B.C.
I believe a few Lord Nelsons were also built there.
