Cranse Iron.

I notice on that bowsprit link above that the diagram labels as "bowsprit shrouds" what I would normally refer to as "whisker stays", and uses the term "bowsprit shroud plate" where I would expect to read "whisker stay chain plate". Maybe that's a regional difference as I see the link is to somewhere in the UK.

Rockter will become famous soon enough
I must remember that it's the "cranse iron".

Before now it was the "metal band near the end of the bowsprit".

the metal band at the outboard end of the bowsprit is the 'Spider Band'.

Most of the other terms in the drawing are right on otherwise...

I hate to disagree but a spider band is the same thing, that is to say a band on a spar but itís on a mast and it has cleats or belaying pins built in so it can look like a spider to drunk sailor with poor vision. And if you add a ring to a cranes iron for another spar to slide in such as a topmast or boom for a studding sail the cranes iron is now called a wythe iron.
All the best,
