We are here at the Finger Lakes Boating Museum in Hammondsport, New York on the edge of Keuka Lake. It is in the old Taylor Wine buildings and especially the stone tasting rooms they had on the hillside.
Last time we saw a beautiful two toned runabout boat on display and I wanted to show the details of the glossy and chromed hardware. This is a fancy and practical rope cleat. There is nothing like the chromed metal on varnished wood for beauty and function.
