I am very happy with my Wooden Boat Store belaying pins. The quality is excellent. I just wish they also came in a 12 inch size.
Where convenient, belaying pins are a nice alternative to cleats. I first got on to the idea when I built a Ross Lillistone, Phoenix III, where he had specified them. These are simple, but nicely done.
These also make excellent rocking horse handles ;>)
Hmmm. Without pictures it didn't happen! Send pix to email@example.com
