Here are the wrappers for the last two new 9” chrome plated bronze nameplates in existence. They are now mounted on a 1984 Tollycraft 61 which had lost their originals.
Sea-Dog Line is a large distributor of marine hardware with headquarters in Everett, WA (phone 425-259-0194
, website sea-dog.com
, 3402 Smith Ave.).
Sea-Dog no longer lists this item and does not respond to inquiries about these parts.
Keep in mind that Sea-Dog sells everything through a huge network of wholesalers and distributors and sells nothing directly to the public. If you ask them any question, they refer you to the nearest distributor who knows nothing about these parts.
The 9” chrome nameplates were used on a variety of boats from the 1980’s on which includes 34’s, 37’s, 40’s, 44’s, 53’s, 57’s and 61’s and possible others. Usually they stand alone, sometimes with a chrome propeller.
Don’t confuse these with the 14 or 15” nameplates on 26’s or other boats that could be plastic or bronze.
Good luck, please keep the Club informed if you talk Sea-Dog into making these. The patterns and molds are at a factory in Taiwan that could fire these up if they wanted to or could profit sufficiently.
