Ship's Bell Dimensions
« on: May 26, 2008, 09:22:48 PM »
Guys,

  What are the basic bell dimensions?  The Drum's bell looks like it's in the ball park of 12" in diameter.  Thanks.

Here's one made of cast iron.  I wonder how old it is...

No one from the Foundation has stepped up to the plate?  This should be an easy one to write, since it's procuring a single object.  Is this something that you would want to mount to the 310 boat?
