Description

The conventional leathered bronze gaff saddle is designed for use where the gaff peak angle is greater than 40 degrees.

Where the peak angle is between 10 degrees and 40 degrees, use a High Peak Saddle instead. Where the peak angle is less than 10 degrees (i.e. almost vertical), use a Gunter Saddle instead.

Manufactured from bronze and wrapped in high-quality leather, this gaff saddle combines with a spar end fitting and suitable link to join the gaff to the mast.

Note that gaff saddles are also available in stainless steel and galvanised steel, both of which are lighter and stiffer than this bronze option.
