About Sea Dog
If entrepreneurs are noted for taking the road less traveled, then the founder of Sea-Dog, Hans “Action” Broson Sneve, was a shining example. As a representative for a number of marine hardware lines in the early 1930s, he came up with the idea of showcasing his wares on the type of vehicle they were intended for, a sea vessel. His sales route became the waters of the Pacific Coast.
The M.V Sea-Dog, also known as the “Boat-Show-Boat”, was one of two identical 55 foot cruisers built by Stephens Bros. of Stockton, California. One was built for H.A.B. Sneve Company and the other reported for Charlie Chaplin. Well built of oak frames, Port Orford cedar planking and all teak superstructure, she was equipped with all types of gear from manufacturers represented by the company. A professional skipper, Captain Cronquist, was hired along with a first mate, Orville Nysether, Mr. Sneve’s nephew. Unfortunately, due to the many passengers who would periodically come aboard, Mr. Sneve’s pet alligator was not commissioned for the journey. Hans Sneve commenced a coastwise trip from Alaska to Mexico visiting all ports large and small en route and having an open house for the public in all ports. The new and well appointed yacht created quite an impression in the early thirties considering this was the depth of the depression. In some of the Alaskan ports, it wasn’t uncommon for practically the entire population of a town to turn out to view the Sea-Dog.
The Sea Dog Line 1/2″ X 20′ Dock Line Double Braided Gold / White is rated at a breaking strength of 2190KGS/4400LBS
Breaking Strength and Safe Working Load are ratings which are applied to Sea-Dog parts only by the manufacturer of the part (our supplier). If this information is not listed in our catalog, it is because our supplier has chosen to not apply this information.
Usually this type of rating will not apply to a cast part, regardless of the material, since there is no guarantee of consistency in base material throughout the part. There may be air voids and other imperfections related to the process of casting which may affect structural integrity and cannot
be seen “under the skin” without cutting the part open.
Parts which may be load rated by our suppliers are forged, drop forged, stamped and machined parts. Be sure to refer to the “Breaking Strength section in the front of our catalog, which describes definitions of Breaking Strength and Working Load Limit (WLL).
Because a part is not load rated does not mean that the part is not usable in most reasonable applications. It is up to the end user to determine if the part may cause personal injury to a user, by their own testing and common sense evaluation of the part.
