The image to our left is one of the traditional yacht fittings being installed on Frances by Peter Johns. This work of art is a Bronze spinnaker pole fitting by Wilmex in Gdansk, Poland.
-So next time we see Big Red sent up to fly on Frances, it’s this work of art that keeps her flying.
One other example of the return to traditional deck fitting on Frances is the use of Ording blocks for her running rig.
To our left are the two Ording deck mounted turn blocks used for her mast running back stays. A note from Peter johns tells us Ording blocks are available in teak or ash with ss or aluminIum bronze bindings and bronze or delrin sheaves, in all sizes from 65mm up.
So whenever a small bit of idle time creeps into our lives take a look at the catalogs of these suppliers.
