Not the result we were expecting ! 

We had planned to take a couple of friends over to Northern Ireland for a weeks sailing in Belfast Lough, two hours into the ten hour trip and the weather changed completely with large rough seas and a good 28knts steady wind instead of the 12-14 on the forecast. One of our friends…

Stanchion holders

Anyone have a lead on finding some stanchion mounts, that fit the cascade custom toe rails. They were custom designed, the last I heard, a group put together for an order of Fifty or so. Might want to do that again???? Jack.See More
