Are the brass fittings original?

Hi Jim, thanks, I don't know when I'll get her on the pond. Hopefully as soon as the weeds are sorted!!
Tiger, the fittings are not original, they were all made for  Grace by Roger : http://www.modelyachtfittings.com/Pages/default.aspx
I did use a part of the original brass gooseneck which My grandfather made from a bullet casing!
