Beautiful NZ-made aluminium bronze rowlocks (sold in pairs). Aluminium bronze offers more strength than leaded gunmetal (the bronze alloy most commonly used for deck hardware), but it weathers to the same pleasing patina. Aluminium bronze allows these rowlocks to be finely shaped and lighter than their gunmetal counterparts.
Once installed the fork cannot be separated from the fixed plate putting an end to lost rowlocks. The rowlocks fold down when not in use making them ideal for traditional dinghies powered by motor or sail.
Each rowlock is secured with 5 screws ensuring a very firm attachment to the gunwale - essential for the forces suffered by rowlocks. Silicon bronze screws are included for mounting.
These rowlocks offer excellent value and are of the highest quality.
