Would like to know more about what exactly Ace sells in real bronze alloys. I'm overhauling a boat and from where I'm located it's about 2 hours to the nearest chandlery
. Not even a West Marine
within 80 miles so a local source for anything suitable would be very interesting.
So can you tell me what kind of bushings exactly Ace sells in bronze and what bronze alloy do they use? Anything else like bronze bolts, screws other hardware
