Looking for replacement metal Ensign emblems (2). Fixing up #1687. One is broken and other badly corroded. Unfortunately those listed on 3/17 already gone. Thanks for any leads.
Good afternoon, Hans.
Unfortunately I cannot help with your search- the badges were long gone by the time I became the newest caretaker of #1177- but your recent post reminded me of an idea I've been thinking about a lot during my current maintenance projects.
If you have the badges off the coaming boards now, and if the complete yet deteriorating one is in sufficient enough shape, I was wondering if you might have the means to lay it face down on a copier or scanner so that a digital copy could be shared?
I don't have any experience with 3D printing but I'm certain there's an outfit out there that could reproduce these in any color you want if you could live with a plastic copy. But for selfish reasons, I'd love to have a perfect head-on copy so that I could digitize the design for use in other projects (I'm thinking fleet t-shirts, embroidery work, etc). Such a cool piece of artwork from a bygone era when boat builders would put some thought and work into the creative side of production.
Thanks in advance
I have a shop drawing from Pearson Yacht of the emblem that was on the coamings.
I would want a couple as well!
I purchased a set from Zeke about 18 years ago. I believe the supply eventually ran out without a replacement supplier to Ensign Spars.
Ensign Spars have just meet with the bronze foundry and will know next week on how much coaming logos and builders plates are going to cost stay tune to our website if you are interested

Any news yet on the cost and availability of the coaming logos?
I see Ensign Spars has put their mast boot up on their website. My mast has the vang attachment on the mast right at deck level so a boot won't work for me.
