Con-Tech is a leader in wholesale customer manufactured boat parts and marine hardware such as mooring bitts. Marine hardware has long been fabricated of stainless steel and brass, as such materials help protect the hardware from corrosion in marine conditions. Choosing the right hardware is always a key element of boat safety. If the right choices are not made at the time marine hardware is selected, it may be severely compromised when exposed to marine environments if the right corrosion-resistant choices are not made at the time of purchase.
Covid 19 increased marine hardware sales and the post-pandemic effects have been equally strong. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, sales of all marine products and services including boats rose to 13-year high in 2020 to $47 billion, increasing 9% from the prior year. The boating industry has touted data showing that new powerboat sales are strong, along with sales of pontoon boats, wake sport boats, and jet boats.
The trend has shown enormous potential for the future as first-time buyers are entering the market in record numbers increasing wait times and straining dealer inventories. The EU and U.S. reached an interim agreement in 2021 that prevents the doubling of tariffs on U.S. boats and engines – which also offered encouraging news for marine manufacturers.
Con-Tech specializes in wholesale custom manufactured boat parts and marine hardware including mooring bitts, the system for fastening ropes or cables whereby a post or pair of posts is mounted on the ship’s bow. Con-Tech works exclusively with a small number of ISO-certified stainless steel foundries and fabrication shops to provide consistent, high-performance mooring bitts in 316 stainless steel. Like our other wholesale custom manufactured boat parts and marine hardware, the mooring bitts have the same high quality, polished surface that complements the overall appeal of any boat. Our mooring bitts are available in 4″, 5″, 6″, and 7″ sizes.
The Importance of Stainless Steel Marine Hardware
Stainless steel marine hardware is highly resistant to rust and less likely less to corrode in saline conditions, while the cheaper steel marine hardware better withstands the challenges of sun and wind. Many underwater applications favor brass marine hardware and its alloys in saline, high-pressure marine environments.
High-grade stainless steel marine hardware is preferred in many applications as it may last more than 1000 years. Due to its durability and strength as well as its’ rust and corrosion resistance features it is always a safe choice.
