    i beleive you may have the term wrong sir the spur latch is an electrical component that is used for latching the chassiy or drive in place that to me is a mechineist job any other trick questions you may have and if you were to look it up you will find what i say to be true

    Actually Shug it tends to be the bigger the boat the bigger the spur latch. Now that must be a clue .

    An anchor winch braking mechanism; the latch is applied to the spur gear(s) to prevent movement of drum. Often, the latch is applied by a crank wheel.
    That's my guess.

    Near the waterline, at the bow is where one would normally find it.

    Ha ha, I think you lost an appostrophie or two, you English talk funny too, in the cricket all your getting is "compassion" to keep interested so we can beat you more often later. Regards from Jeff.

    .

    It's a leather strap with what's usually referred to as a 'buckle', but maybe someplaces it's called a 'latch'.
