Bronze Hawse Pipe Covers...Sources??

Hello all,

I'd like to find replacement covers for our bronze hawse pipes on Jo Beth. She's an '84, so these are the 'old style' types. I hesitate to call them 'oval', but I believe that's how they're identified. Specifically, I'm looking for ones with hooks to hold the end of the rode up and ready.

Anyway, I've looked all over - Spartan Marine Hardware, Bristol Bronze, Buck-Algonquin, and so on...but no luck. Any suggestions?

I could use one too, in any metal, if you find them.

I've found plenty in SS and chromed bronze, from Hamilton marine, West Marine, Defender, etc. Finding them in good ol' bronze seems to be the issue - and Spartan Marine does have them in bronze, but not the correct size...

You can get items dechromed if it's important.

I also looked around without success. I'd bet they were a ABI part.

The closest I found was the round thing at Round Rope Chain Deck Pipes, Investment Cast 316 Stainless Steel Oval Hawse Pipes, Oval Hawse Pipes by Sea Dog , but they are round.

This one on ebay looks similar, but is not hinged. VINTAGE ROPE DECK PIPE BRONZE ANCHOR HAWSE With LID | eBay

I wonder if Thumper has a source.

True, true enough...

I haven't looked on E-Bay yet. I did send Thumper a note, but he's not answered.

I'm wondering about taking the covers and cleaning up the undersides of each with a wire brush/grinder wheel, and tack-welding (or 'tack-brazing') a new hook on them...then attaching new chains...or figuring out another way to secure the rode end to the cover.

Old bronze hot water tanks are an excellent source of raw material. Easy to fill and fillet , gas,neutral flame ,dip strips of same material in flux ,can be hammered and annealed . If all you need is the hookme,drill a hole and modifiy an eye bolt.

Don't know of any lids that may match, but you can find hawse pipe and lid in bronze at: https://shop.classic-boat-supplies.c...in-deck-cover/

Warning, they are not cheap!

I believe Spartan Marine carries the bronze hawse pipe in the oval shape in three different sizes.
