Brass Stem Bands for Canoe (Pair)
48" x 3/8" wide. Includes 24 pcs of # 4 x ¾” brass screws for mounting.
The stem band, made of malleable brass, can take many years of abrasion. Brass naturally tarnishes and darkens, but can be buffed back to a shine with steel wool and a metal polish such as Brasso.
