Polished SS Bow Plates***SOLD***

Last year at the Dania, FL marine flea market, I picked up these two polished SS bow plates, hoping that somehow I could modify them to use on my boat, but there's just too much difference. I paid 35 bucks each for them.....maybe somebody out there is interested. I love these things, and I guess I'll just have to get one custom cut. The Manatee is just too bulbous in the bow. Of course, I'll send info if anybody needs them.

Nice, but Moon Dance ain't no spit-and-polish frigate like the HMS Narcissus.

Same here, Darrel. Something like that on my boat would be like whipped cream on a turd.

Stainless, Plastic, bed liner they all do the same thing. It is all about function.

Do you know what kind of boat these were made for?

It would be hard to know if they would fit without having them at the boat.

I'm interested in the one on the left. My bow looks sharper than 20 degrees; can this unit be further bent? What gauge s.s. (thickness)?

Yeah, definitely can be bent. It's the heavier gauge of the two, but I doubt if it's even 1/8". It's nice enough to want to do it right. Wish I could use it.

Hey Capt. Terry:

Sorry to report that both were sold. The good news is that they went to NC and the freight was another 78 bucks UPS to MD (Yikes). SS plate is heavy, and the sizes weren't exactly small either. Add some bubble wrap to protect the finish and you've got a pretty bulky package.
