It was time to make a pivot pin for the centreboard in anticipation of its installation.
I had obtained a long M10 A4 grade stainless steel bolt for this purpose.
Here I am cutting the bolt to make a pin 1 3/4" long.
A good bimetal blade made short work of the bolt.
This is the pin itself.
And here it is test fitted in the keel.
That was fun!
