Oh, yeah... got it.  I call 'em oar stantions.  Those ones on the Zizumara were hand cast by a brass worker here in Seattle.  I can get a name for you if you'd like.

Hi Ben,  Glad to hear you are building a boat!  Wondering what you mean by sockets? -Cheers, Kelly

Bear in mind that for any five boatbuilders you ask, you'll get six answers back, and we all think we are right.

No, I never have done that, but some might. Seems overkill to me.

Got it. Thanks again.

Folks usually use blocks to separate the inner gunwale from the side of the boat, placed roughly where the ribs might have gone. This is where the bolts pass through.

I'm a big fan of just bolting the gunwales on at the ribs. When you need to do gunwale or side panel work you can have the gunwales off, intact, in about twenty minutes, and on again nearly as fast.
A friend asked me to replace her gunwales a few years back. What should gave been a two-day job took over a week, most of which was spent rebuilding the boat's side panels from the destruction ensuing from the gunwale removal.
