Product (click image for more views) Description

This is a real cool ship's makers' plate. Normally we see these made of brass, aluminum, or steel, but this one is made of fiberglass. It measures 39 inches long and is about 22 inches tall. Weighs less than 10 pounds. This is not something we made up to look real, it is the real deal. This item has some wear and the white marks on the front are paint and will not clean off. Great nautical decor item!

This is an original Life Boat Station Bell. When you heard this bell ringing, it was not going to be a good day. The item is made of cast aluminum. It was painted grey when we found it, so we removed the paint and polished the aluminum surface to make it a great looking display piece. It measures 10 1/2 inches tall and about 5 inches wide. It weighs 4 1/2 pounds. Looks like the tag indicates it works on 220 volts of power. We have not tested it to see if it works.

This item is being sold as found with some surface rust and in general needing some cleaning. Great display or possible use piece. Total length is 7 1/2 inches and it weighs just about 1 1/2 pounds.

This is a WWI Era German or Astro-Hungarian Hebel Flare Launcher. It measures 14 inches long. If you push the lever just below the trigger it allows the barrel to flip open to load a shell.

This is a great vintage wooden propeller. Unknown maker. Hub side is marked "5737  72 L X L 38". From end to end it measures 6 feet long with the hub being 9 inches wide and 4 inches thick. Given the minor damage on one of the leading edge surfaces that has started to crack, this is a no fly prop. This item is being sold as a display piece and should not be considered for use unless properly inspected and certified for your specific use. I would say it is unlikely this propeller would ever pass certification for use.

Mount it on the the ceiling or wall, it will be a great conversation piece!

This is a brass Rotator that was part of a Taffrail  Ship Log. One fin is stampsed " T. Walker and Son LTD Birmingham England". These items were part of a devise that was used to determine nautical miles traveled.  The crew would toss one of these rotors into the water behind the ship. The propeller was attached to a cable that was attached to a second devise that converted the spinning cable into a signal that was read by dial something like an odometer. Needless to say when GPS came to be, these items were scrapped. Still we see them from time to time on vessels coming in to be cut up for scrap and we buy them. They make a great wall display and often test the knowledge of more modern day sailors.

This rotor measures 14 inches long, and with the attached rope it is 50 inches long. This is a very uncommon large size rotator. This unit weighs about 4 pounds.

Are you looking for an un-restored original porthole? Have a look at this monster! This porthole weighs 58 pounds. The hatch cover is iron and the rest of it is cast brass.

The glass measures 12 inches wide and has no cracks, but will require some cleaning. The glass has some minor pitting.
