Classic Boat Supplies continues to expand their range of silicon bronze screws for wooden boat building. These remarkable screws withstand constant contact with salt water and will not rust. Unlike stainless steel screws, silicon bronze screws will not corrode if buried within timber structural members without access to oxygen. They are much harder than brass, which will corrode in a salt water environment. Available in gauges ranging from 6g right through to 18g, from lengths of half-an-inch through to 4 inches, Classic Boat Supplies is sure to have a bronze fastener for your boat building project. What's more, silicon bronze screws are available in both slot head (or cut head) and square drive head. Recently, customers have purchased bronze screws for fastening timber house decks. They like the way that bronze weathers (similar to copper, but more brown than green) and enjoy the contrast to the ubiquitous stainless steel screw. Classic Boat Supplies provides silicon bronze screws with all bronze boat hardware sold at no charge. Silicon bronze screws are not cheap, costing slightly more than their stainless steel equivalent. Realising this, Classic Boat Supplies provides generous quantity discounts for whole packs of screws sold.
