    Can anyone tell me who the manufacturer of the turnbuckles I have is. I am restoring a 1942 ketch and would like to have as much documentation as possible. It is a Neptun fork.

    I'm not positive about this but it sort of reminds me of the Wilcox-Crittenden(sp?) logo.

    That has always been the trademark of Merriman. First known as Merriman Brothers, then Merriman Holbrook and they ended as Merriman Yacht Specialties. Sadly they are now out of business. They had some of the best old style bronze hardware available in the last few years.
