Recognize this logo?

I am redoing the standing rigging on a 1972 37' Irwin Ketch. It looks like some of these fittings are brass, and may be original. Im keeping them on, but was curious if anyone was familiar with this company. Thanks!

They are most likely bronze, not brass.
I've seen the logo before, but I'm going brain dead on the name. Anybody else?

That logo is on a couple of "spare" used pins I have on board, pretty sure mine are stainless though.
They were in the spare parts kit that came with the boat, for might be original 1975 parts for my C&C.
No idea on the manufacturer.

Re: Recognize this logo?

It would be Merriman and bronze. Possibly chrome-plated originally with the thin plating gone over the years. Merriman made good stuff back in the day.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
