There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

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.

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,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat
Never design a boat that is weaker then the mast

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.
