Gaff Span Shackle

Davey & Company Gaff Span Shackles are inspired by traditional designs.  These bronze gaff span shackles from Davey & Company are strong, simple and functional, but at the same time have the beauty and elegance to enhance any vessel.

The gaff span shackle is for attaching halyards to the gaff span. The size relates both to the pin size, and the wire/rope size the gaff span shackle can accommodate.

Product Features:

Crafted from traditional gunmetal bronze.

Hand made in England by the expert craftsmen at Davey & Company, using techniques that haven’t changed much in over 100 years. Bronze is a favored material to use for traditional boat fittings because it takes casting, machining, and polishing very well, is relatively strong and incredibly resistant to salt water.  While bronze is often more expensive initially than other marine grade materials, this expense is easily recovered through the high strength and long life bronze provides.

This product is also available in galvanized steel. Please submit a product enquiry for additional information.  This product can also be combined with other Davey & Company items to achieve free shipping of Davey & Company.

Shipping Policy

ACTUAL SHIPPING should be charged. For most orders, you will be charged actual Shipping/Handling (S/H) at the time your product ships. Read the text of the detailed description of the product for additional shipping details for that product. If the product says either "free shipping" or "free shipping and handling" in the description itself, you can expect it to be free S/H. Otherwise not. On special order or larger products, we will send you a shipping quote (if we expect actual shipping and handling to be greater than $20 we do this) and if you are not happy with the S/H quote, we will cancel your order.

* For Davey & Co Bronze products, there is a flat $10.00 S/H charge if order is under $100 -- but this is waived on brand orders over $100 so S/H on Davey & Co is free if over $100. For Weems & Plath, Fynspray, and Sunbrella products including special orders, shipping is free if brand order total is over $300. Some of these brand products will state "free shipping" or include a non-zero USA shipping cost in the product shipping tab, otherwise the actual shipping charges apply and you will receive a final shipping invoice to approve before your product ships to you. If you are not happy with the shipping quote that we provide you in these cases, you can cancel your order, no problems.
*** For ATN products, you will be contacted with an invoice for actual shipping and information about delivery timeframe. ATN uses UPS shipping for domestic USA and US Postal Airmail for International and products ship from Florida. If you are not happy with the shipping quote, you can cancel your order, no problems.
Unless otherwise stated on the product itself, all Best Seller items ship with the quoted shipping rates to locations inside the continental United States. We can ship internationally but we must charge actual shipping and handling rates. If your order is shipping to an international destination or states of AK, HI, after you place your order, we will contact you by e-mail with a quotation for any extra shipping and handling charges. If you wish to continue with the order, we will send you an electronic invoice by e-mail and once it is paid, we will ship your order. If you prefer not to proceed with the order, we will refund your order in full immediately.
