Interesting. It looks like they were designed to work with a sledge hammer. I like the rust and the fence...
Richard:You're right. They work on small commercial craft, perhaps to pull the engine or drive train, or propeller, or equipment. I noticed them behind the chain link and thought it was worthy of a photo. I don't know why they wouldn't be longer for more leverage, or perhaps for confined spaces
Those are huge. But so cool with the rust.
Trobairitz:The Fraser River is a tidal River and the salt water goes all the way up to Pitt Lake. I would presume they got a taste of the salt. They appear to be custom made for each boat and not standard sizes
My Grandpa has tons of these. He was a marine engineer and his life was shipyards. I would love to have some of those now just to have for decoration.
Kathy:You must have a few boat repair places down there. Perhaps they have some which they don't use anymore. You could check their scrap buckets, you just never know what you may find
