Davey & Company Gaff Span Shackles
Sturdy, handsome shackles that attach the peak halyard to the gaff span wire. Made of bronze for years of dependable service.
Davey & Co. bronze is the perfect material for traditional boat fittings. ‘Gunmetal’ bronze is strong and resistant to salt water and does its job for a very long time.
Our bronze boat fittings are shipped in a high polish finish that can be restored or maintained using Daveyshine high performance metal polish. The bronze will slowly gain its natural, darker brown patina. Eventually, upon contact with sea air, a deep patina develops hints of green. The patina does not effect strength, performance or longevity.
(Gunmetal is the British term for this particular bronze alloy, sometimes referred to as ‘red brass’ in the US)
