    Ahoy there,
    Is anybody interested in ordering new haws pipes? Or knows where to get them? We need six new ones.
    We are also looking for a bunch of window gasket for all our portlights.

    Thanks you!

    Hi Miriam,

    Bud Taplin is the source for the gasket material.

    Port Townsend Foundry in WA has cast bronze hawse pipes available, but they are somewhat pricey.  Contact them.

    Hi Miriam,

    See this message thread for info on hawse pipes.

    Currently there are none left. Minimum run is 14 sets, and the more that are made, the the lower the price.

    The final cost will depend on several factors. I sold the last ones at cost plus a little, but I neglected to factor in the eBay and Paypal comissions so I basically lost money on the deal.

    I financed (my credit card did, anyway) the last run, including fabricating the tool, then sold the extras afterwards. I am not going to do that again.

    This time it's a $100 deposit for each pair before I have them made, the difference plus postage payable before shipping.

    Let me know if you have any questions,
