nickle copper

it's an alloy that has the qualities that make it a good choice for a marine environment
and it does oxidize green
but unlike stainless or silicon bronze you can cut it with a bandsaw
so it's sympathetic to hand fabrication

i made these caps to be bedded with 3M 5200 to keep the water from following the chain plates through the deck
of Calypso

earth air fire and water
imagine the wood smoke
of a viking departure
drifting skyward
through the treetops
