I am offering an original (not a reproduction) 1940s brass Taffrail Log Register. These devices were mounted on the boat’s taffrail (stern), connected a rotor (by a long line) which was drug through the water. The register converted the rotor’s revolutions into nautical miles. This unit was built by Fisher-Pierce Co. Inc., Boston, Mass. who began building the famous Boston Whaler boats in 1958. This register measures 7½” Long x 3½” Tall x 5” Wide, weighs 6 pounds, and has serial #S1584 stamped into the main housing. The 3”dial face is signed as follows: "NAUTICAL MILES" "FISHER-PIERCE CO. INC." "BOSTON MASS." "U.S.A." and has a 0 < 100 mile odometer. The face is covered with a removable convex plastic lens held by a screw-on brass bezel. The bronze swivel register mount has a 3” base mounted on a 7” x 11” x ½” wood display plank. The register appears to be functional but cosmetically the face has some corrosion and paint loss on the miles scale. This unit displays well and is a rare piece of U.S. maritime history. Additional Nautical Items Available - Please Call Cliff @ 760-736-8101 For More Information.
