Boom Gallows - Bronze

We are in process of refitting our Pearson Invicta and looking to buy someone's used Boom Gallows fittings so we can construct our own Boom Crutch. If someone out there has a pair of bronze gallows we would be interested.

Re: Boom Gallows - Bronze

Have you considered buying new? A google search comes up with multiple hits including this one.

Port Townsend Foundry in Washington

Looks like some nice stuff.

Thanks Rich, we did the same search and came up with a few options, but we are trying to save money where we can and am still hoping to find a set for a potentional $ savings.

OK, I can understand that. Have you checked with marine salvage companies? Locally, we have Don's Salvage. Think of it as a junkyard for boats instead of cars, where you look for the parts you need/want. I've seen folks get anchors, stanchions, winches, etc. at very reasonable prices.

Re: Boom Gallows - Bronze

Excellent suggestion - sent emails to the Mystic, CT and Portland, ME consignment, hope it works, if not, we will probably end up going with your initial thought. Where do old boats go to die (or at least where do their parts go?)

Re: Boom Gallows - Bronze

Might be worth a call to Minney's Yacht Surplus, they are in CA. Looks like they have LOTS of parts.
