Strake Rivet and Rove #2001 – #2500


By sponsoring a strake rivet you will be helping to fix one piece of plank to another. A strake is one of the end-to-end lines of planking that make up the hull. The planks are about 1 inch/2.5cm think and the strake rivets would be used used to fix two thicknesses together. The original strake rivets were made of iron and would have been hand crafted and painstakingly hammered into place and held on by a rove which is a diamond shaped complementary piece of metal secured to the back.
