Copper Nail Resources

Ok, I live in a boating town and I’ve been looking for copper nails, etc.  All I’ve been able to find are online resources (sheesh!) .. so I thought I’d share.  Click on the pictures for a better look.

    Next time you’re heading to Port Townshend (think Edensaw), check out the Wooden Boat Chandlery. I’m pretty sure they have a pretty good selection of copper fastenings
