The ship wheel and porthole arrived today and I absolutely love them! My nephew's print fits, and is highlighted perfectly by the porthole as 
you can see in the photo. 
Thanks for your input and work to find such a perfect complement to Nathan's artwork. My husband is making a wooden holder for the porthole similar to my father's barometer (right of sailboat), but for now it sits wonderfully in a plate stand.
I am beyond happy about these and how they look in our home. Your help and communication also made it a very enjoyable and successful process.
Thanks again
Karen (Cincinnati OH)



Thanks man! Bless you brother.

Hi Scott, Here’s a picture of the wire frame insect with nautical float body for my garden. Still deciding whether to paint it and, if so, what color. Thanks for your help with the shipping breakage issues. I appreciate it! Best regards, Karen (Camas. WA)

 brass-ships-wheel.jpgHi Scott,

Thank you again for all your efforts! The solid brass wheel arrived here in perfect condition and it was a pleasure to fit it in our 110 year old steel hulled salon boat 'Tourist'.

Meanwhile we are proudly navigating with it through the canals here in Amsterdam. I can tell you …, it looks fantastic, it suits the boat, the (hotel) guests on board are excited and … it manoeuvres beautifully!!

Keep course and speed! Keep well and all the best!

Hi Scott,

Please see picture of completed project using:

-3” Solid Brass Wall Ship Bell Clapper (NDS-Clapper3)
-Marlinspike Braided Bellropes Brass Shackle

The 4” bell was recycled from a school yard handbell which had a broken off handle and missing clapper. I built a wood table stand out of scrape wood and 1” wood dowels.

We used the bell for the first time this last Saturday, at the Troop 1 Eagle Scout Court of Honor. It was a hit. Each new Eagle Scout was allowed to ring the bell to announce that they have completed their Eagle Trail. This from now on will be a tradition for all new Eagles.

Thank you again for your quick service and quality replacement parts.


Gary, Scoutmaster Troop 1


Thank you for returning my call last week. I appreciate it more than you know.
Hoping to order more of the fish nets. Have been looking for years (and hours last week) for one for a friend. Love the 10 x 10.
Had one from my aunt many many many years ago that I hung on the wall for all my children's stuff. Couldn't live without it.
Outgrew the refrigerator door !!!
Hope you have a nice day.  (H.A. Lafayette, NJ)


Hi Scott.

Feel free to use the photo. This is the 42" wheel made into a table with legs screwed on and a glass top. It's very heavy but also leaves the room open rather than having a huge coffee table "lump" in the way. Not everyone's taste.

The legs I got off eBay because all my woodworking gear is in storage. Otherwise I would’ve turned them on my lathe.

I used screw-in fasteners available @ Lowe’s or Home Depot in the hardware drawers. There are two kinds; one is longer and made of “pot metal” that screws into the proper size drilled hole with a hex key, and there is a shorter milled brass one that screws into the hole with a flat-blade screwdriver.

I used the longer ones but three of them split while installing causing much frustration and another trip to Lowe’s.

These screw-in anchors also come in different sizes...the legs had 1/4” dia screws, medium thread. Most furniture leg screw hardware seems to be geared for 5/16” these days.

Thanks again!

Hi Scott,

Just a quick note to let you know the gimbaled oil lamp and the bell rope were delivered safe and sound down under today thank you.


i am also delighted with them both and look forward to mounting them in my catalina 34 yacht in the next couple of days

Thought you might like the feed back highly recommended

warm regards leon (melbourne Australia)





What I did was

buy 1/2 inch diameter lag screws and painted the heads gold. Large bolts and screws are not manufactured anymore, is what I gathered by calling various sources. Looks good though. The helmet is still the main focus of the office entrance. Although some people want to put the diving helmet on.

Thanks for your help.

Gary (DeKalb, IL)



Good morning Scott,

Thought you might like to see where one of your brackets ended up. Wooden base is Olive Tree wood, sanded as smooth as an egg and then varnished.

The upright wood is Kapur. It is extremely hard, very heavy and never cracks.

Hi, I got my "presents' yesterday. I am not disappointed! The line rope you sent meWeathered Fishing Rope w/ Net Approx 10' Long: click to enlarge as a sample will work for my projects. The smaller diameter ropes in place of the original, will be kept as is for filler decorations.

In the future, I need to purchase 5 floats. I need to get back on your website and choose the floats just like the ones on the 6 x 4 White Weathered Fishing Floats on a Rope (NDNS-102014x1).  Can't wait to get home in the morning,

Dear Scott,
Thank you for the update. I was a Navy Diver back in the late 80's and have always wanted this baby. I finally broke down and did it! Looking forward to getting it! I will be a good steward of this treasure, sir.
I can say when I was in, the Master/Senior Chiefs all trained and used the Mark V before us, and for us we used the Mk XII. But the Mark V is the symbol of reverence!
Thanks Scott and let me know if you need anything else from me!

6 Inch Small Wooden Ships Wheel

So I finally got around to using the boat wheel I ordered from you.


This is how I got the lamp originally. Cool idea but the wheel looked too big and looked a little weird. So that when I thought about your store and the nice little decorative wheels you have and then did this.


It's the perfect size and color/finish. Just turn the wheel to turn the light off or on.

Decorative Boat Wheel

So there is this town not far from me called LeClair Iowa (most famous for the show American Pickers, if you've seen the show, Mike, the main guy on the show, started his business Antique Archaeology from a shop in this town) and the town has lots of neat shops, restaurants and antique stores.

Well they also have a distillery. It's called "Mississippi River Distilling Company" because the town and distillery are right on the Mississippi River, and because of that they decided to have an old riverboat style theme to them.

Well I go out to LeClair a lot and have stopped by theDecorative Boat Wheel distillery numerous times, the have really good spirits and especially good whiskey. I'm a big fan of their Rye whiskey so I got a bottle. Once the bottle was empty I didn't want to just get rid of it and lately I've been making a hobby of turning different things into lamps. So I made the lamp. I felt that the lamp shade was kind of plain and could use something on it too.


So I thought I would find a little decorative boat wheel. The wheel puts a nice final touch to the lamp that I was looking for and it is the absolute perfect size.

Here are a couple pictures of the lamp and if you should want to keep them or use them to show other customers where or how some of your products are being used then be my guest. Erik (Moline, IL)

Received my order today. I was impressed with the items AND the careful packaging!!!

I am doing a half bath in a nautical theme and had no success in my city trying to find some of the items I was looking for. I began searching online only to be disappointed each time I located something because I felt the pricing was unreasonable.

I found the descriptions of your items to be informative and as for my items, accurate!Seaside Ocean Sea Gulls in Flight Coastal Wall Plaques  Seaside Sea Gulls in Flight Coastal Wall Plaques

Thanks so much for the Nautical 16" lamp lantern with base. It is such a great conversation piece. I live on the eastern shore where there are Nautical 16plenty of nautical stores, and everyone that sees the lamp ask me where I got it. The pictures do not do this lamp justice. I also would like to thank you for the careful way this was packaged. If anyone thinks your shipping charge is unreasonable than they have never seen the way your items are packaged. Scott, you are first class all the way !!!

Thought you might like to see what we did with the lifebelt we bought from you .... we used it as a guest book for my daughter's wedding on board a cruise ship. It was perfect.

thank you



Good morning,

I really appreciate your help in getting this out so we will have it by Friday morning. It is a gift for a function we are having on Friday, and considering how difficult it was to find and how we only had a short window to get it delivered, you have really gone beyond expectations. I thank you, and will always consider your company when purchasing this type of item.

Thanks again!


Scott, The Bell I ordered from you came today. 4 Inch Wide Brass School Teacher's Hand BellIt is perfect! Just what I wanted. My son's teacher is going to love it. Thanks Again, Elizabeth


16x9x9 Decorative Crab Trap We received the crab trap that I had ordered from your store. I have to say, the trap far exceeded my expectations! It will be a wonderful functional decoration for an upcoming “beach” wedding. It will be the receptacle for the Wedding cards. It was definitely a pleasure to deal with your company, I had e-mailed a question and it was answered immediately, and the trap came packaged very securely, and we are thrilled with the quality. We will share with friends your store and great service!

Thanks Scott. I appreciate your help and how you kept in touch with me on this stuff. You don't see that every day.





Thanks again for the great ships wheel. As we discussed yesterday I was able to find the perfect solution for hanging. D Ring Hanger ideas for mounting Ship WheelI Picture Hangers used to mount ships wheel used two D-Ring Hangers on the back of the wheel and then just used two 30 lb. picture hangers. The best part is that it's easy to install and the mounts don't show!

Thanks, Greg



 Excellently and painstakingly packed. Everything exceeded all our expectations. Scott and Erin, had awesome ideas in helping us make our room a reality.

Thanks guys! Louis



Hi Scott,
Irish toasting bellEverything arrived in great shape. This is our new "Irish toasting bell" (see attached to phone booth).

First you ring the bell to get everyone's attention (that part works fine, tested it myself, woke up my wife) then you read or make up a toast. Not exactly on the front of a yacht but the bell will go to good work.

Thanks again for the fast service and excellent quality!

Take care, Happy St. Patrick's Day,

Minnesota state championship


Wayzata and Minnetonka are suburbs west of Minneapolis. They are separated by two Lake Minnetonka bays, Wayzata and Gray's. We have pretty complete records of football games back to 1952, and one game in 1947 when Minnetonka was known as Excelsior. Last year, we played for the Minnesota state championship in the highest class. The trophy has room for 45 future game results.

Thank you for going out of your way to ship the bell so we could have the trophy in time for the September 1 game.

Thanks again for the great customer service and helping out a member of the U.S. Armed Forces stationed here in Germany - all the best to you and your family - enjoy your 4th of July weekend!




The fenders work great at the dock, and even when we had to get towed in side by side by a new speedboat. Since this is a full displacement hull, the front fenders are pretty well soaked after cruising around, so I just hang them up for a few days until they dry out. They still look and perform as when new. They're much more than just an ornament for me. Can't wait to get back in the water, but that usually is around May in our location. Dale






I just received the "Engine Order Telegraph" I ordered from you last week. It is gift for my son who has just been promoted to Lieutenant in the Coast Guard. I would like to tell you how pleased I am with the item and its quality.

Thank You,

You guys are the best! I just purchased the one I wanted and paid you via paypal. You completely made my day!
Thank you so much,

markvhotrod3-299x.jpgHey Scott, sorry it took awhile to get back to you, I'm active duty
military and had to deploy for a little while. But, we finally got the
plans all set for the helmets. And here it is. Turned out WAY better than I expected! the helmets on the engine blew everybody away! thanks again. And if you put it on your site, please let me know too, i want to keep a record of where she gets posted. talk to you soon! Russell Deep Sea!



Thank you Russell, for your service to our country, and sharing your creative Mark V helmet project with us! Scott




Love the quality of the product. I had to ask several questions on my first order (of three total) and the response was quick and very helpful. I was very happy and would order from them again!


This customer made a pretty cool working remote control boat with one of our wheels and telegraphs.
Wow! I always admire this sort of stuff.

Hi Scott,
Attached are some underwater photos of me using the helmet. I had to make quite a few modifications, but because the helmet parts were so close to real, it was not too difficult. Mostly just took time and a lot of lathe work. The major modifications I made were the following:

-Made the exhaust valve functional.
-Added whip, air inlet valve, and check valve to air inlet.
-Cast lead ballast (to hold helmet down) on front and back. Safety plate glass for all windows.
-Soldered all windows to helmet.
-Made helmet retaining latch functional.
-Remade three helmet retaining bolts (brass/headless).
-Larger diameter and longer face plate retaining bolt and pin.
-Replaced attachment lugs on front with functional ones.
-Drilled out spitcock valve and made functional.
-Made brass reinforced shoulder straps to support added ballast weight.

The exhaust valve does not work exactly as it would with the helmet sealed to a diving suit, but not having the helmet attached makes the whole thing a lot safer. Basically if anything were to go wrong, you can simply take the helmet off and surface. The ballast is designed to keep the weight of the helmet under water and filled with air negative, so it stays on your shoulders. It is basically the same as the 1970's Aquabell helmets, if you have ever seen these.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing this and now the helmet is not just an ornament, but a functional shallow water diving device. I decided to let it tarnish as it looks more used this way.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Thanks again,
W Stone


Hey Scott,
We will be re-doing the website at in September after we move in. We want to put a "links" section at the bottom where people can go to order the soaps we have, linens and such. We would be happy to put a link to your website there because I just know these little guys are going to make a big hit. I'll keep an eye on your site and see if there's something that would go nicely in the library. I want to do that as sort of a "gentleman's" room. Thanks SO've added your touch to our little space.



Hi Scott :
Thanks for taking care of business so well. It is a pleasure to do business with pro's that care. Thanks again and we will look forward to future business again.

Happy Sales, Ron n Carol




I received my barometer in reasonable time and in perfect condition. The quality of the instrument was better than expected - heavy brass! I recommend the vendor without reservation.

Two buys from you guys!!! Each better than the other.
Would recommend you to any and all.
Thanks for the Prompt & courteous service.

Scott --
Thanks so much! That was really fast. Wish I would have done all my Christmas shopping through you!

Thanks Again!


This will be a present for a good friend who graduated from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in June. He was the top sailor in his class. I thought it was a nice idea, but you all made it even bigger! Thanks a ton and a "dong-dong" for you two.

Best regards,

Just received the clocks. They look great! We are a company that installs interactive TV on cruise ships for Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Costa, and soon to be Princess. Since we have teams sometimes in different parts of the world this will help show each time zone they are in.



Scott, We were so thrilled when we found your 11" tall bell on stand for our barrel train. My husband mounted it on the engine (lawn mower) and we would like to order some smaller bells for each of the barrels behind. Jean / Illinois

Dear Scott,

I am sending some train pictures! The handbells worked too! We used eyebolts and carriage bolts to attach them. The grandchildren had great fun! You can watch it in action: "Norman and his train" http://www.kenthawthorne.comThanks for your help! Jean

Fabulous telescope. Thanks for making my first purchase so easy!
For your information the clock is going to be placed in the passenger saloon of a 1931 great lakes steamship. S.S. City of Milwaukee. If you are ever in Michigan come to Manistee and take a tour of the ship.


Have really enjoyed the items that I have purchased from you in the past. (6)
My Bar is looking great!

Thanks, Sandy

Nautical Cargo Lamp Lantern w/ Base

Hi Scott,
I received my purchases from you yesterday and I just have to tell you how much I love the lantern! It's even nicer than the picture. It's absolutely gorgeous! I am very happy with all my purchases from you, not to mention your quick shipping, but I absolutely love the lantern.



Good Morning.

I received the 12 clocks yesterday, and only had the chance to open one clock to inspect it. I'm very impressed with the item as they will be gifts to the Officers and Board of Directors to be presented at the Opening Night Dinner in May. I am also equally satisfied with your customer service. Thank you so much for an easy transaction.
