Builder's Plate

It looks better in person.  I love it, you have to get one.  I think I am going to paint the background the same color of my hull (Dark blue).  I will let you know how it turns out.  Painted today...

Dick,

It looks great!  Where did you get it from?  I was unhappy with the one I got from Bristol Bronze years ago.

Is it the same size as the original? Same mounting holes? Thanks.

When cast from your original plastic plate there is minor shrinkage since the molten metal fills the void in the mold then cools and shrinks a little. I was able to 'dress' the holes in mine to make the plate fit and look perfect.
