Brightwork supply

Postby Bluesman » Sun Jun 07, 2015 4:41 pm

Where do I find all the stainless brightwork for a potential project? I'm talking about the bow plates, rub rails, etc., all the stuff needed to build a vintage look.

Thanks!

Cutwaters by Mike is a good source for trasnsom bands and cutwaters. I got my SS rub rail from Cruise Marine.

Yes!!! Glen L has some very fine items. Be sure to check out their catalog for all the other ancillary items, too, like the rudder ports, struts, prop shafts, props, rudders, shaft logs, etc!!Great products and great prices. Most of the hardware and building products on all my boats came from Glen L.

Yes, Danielle Colby used to live next door and her father used to shoot all of our family portraits. Mike Wolfe we see now and then but he's a busy man. They're holding a "Kid Pickers" event this weekend down town and supposedly all three will be there. I tend to cruise through the alley way at the pickers most weekends just to show off my Cobra.

Thank you! had to finish that (and a few other things) before starting a boat.....

I see you're in East Troy, my grandparents had a home on Blue Spring Lake in Palmyra from 1954 - 1996.
