Bronze mast bands or cranse irons for traditional sailing boats from Davey & Co. These beautiful fittings have two eyes but are undrilled allowing flexibility as to the location of fixing holes.
The bands are available in in either a polished or chrome-plated finish.
For additional strength, mast bands are offered in manganese bronze too. Contact Us for specific pricing details for manganese bronze (as a guide, expect to pay around 25% more).
These bronze mast bands are a well finished product,thick enough to be very stout and strong...the only down side is that the hole for the mast is not straight sided being larger at the outsides and narrowest half way through the hole leaving the band tight in the middle of the band and rather loose at the top and the bottom of the band.
An improvement would be to have them bored out at the same diameter all the way through to afford a snug fit on the spar.
