Adventure Hardware From Bill O’Connor

Hey Joe,

I was down at the Schooner Adventure recently and took this shot of the fore stay’s anchoring shackles on the bow.  Check out how the top shackle has a corkscrew-like twist in it to keep the eye of the stay on the correct plane.  Bill Holmes was there putting some finishing touches on the new windlass, and was telling me that the shackle is just one of the many custom pieces of hardware required to keep the Adventure rigged properly.

Enjoy,
