Our Ringband


Hi Bud,

I am getting ready to install the bowsprit and noticed that the ringbands port tang is bent slightly downward, should I be concerned?

Bud Taplin

That should not be a problem. I have seen them bent down slightly sometimes because the teak platform interfered with the turnbuckle and wire on the whisker stays.


Should I have it bent back straight?

Bud Taplin

I do not see any reason to. The weld might fracture if you do.


Bud, We are headed to Florida this weekend to look at 5 W-32's. I hope to have a boat for you to survey very soon. We really appreciate the support of this group and your services.


Sorry, Newbie here....this should have been a new topic.

I will figure it out......
