S.O.S. Need a part fabricated

Just discovered a crack in the stainless steel krance -- the fitting on the end of the bowsprit to which the bobstay and shrouds attach -- on my 1979 Cheoy Lee Clipper 42 ketch. A marine machinist here on St. Thomas attempted a weld, but the stainless is deteriorated and won't form a good weld.

Meanwhile, I have guests coming who want to sail, and my boat is down. Does anyone know a sympathetic marine machinist who can fabricate a new stainless part on an expedited basis?

Thanks.

You might have a shot at finding a replacement, lot's of boats getting scrapped these days. Try Dan at dantheboatman@aol.com or call him at 310-795-8978 (Long Beach, CA)

Can you provide a detailed drawing of the part needed? I am sure Nautilus Marine Fabrication can make you one quickly and get it shipped to you in St. T.

I have used them for a few projects and they are great. The understand boats and will get your part made to your specs.

Thank you for your response, suggesting Dan the boat man. I will keep it in mind in the future, but for this part I want new stainless.
