Every ship needs a Ships Bell.  My ship needed a bell, so I picked this one up at Defender on clearance for $7.  I used extra line from the flag halyard that was replaced this year and made a very simple but still nice looking bell rope.

    Why do you need a ships bell? I’m assuming for traditional/ceremonial reasons?

    • Traditional/ceremonial reasons are definitly part of it, but in Connecticut it’s also required by state law for all vessels over a certain size, 15 or 16 feet if I recall.

    Thanks for creating this website about the H27. My H27 is a 1989 model. I plan to rebed the stanchions as you describe with butyl tape. Most likely it would be a good idea to rebed the bow pulpit and stern rail as well. Have you done that?
