Centreboard | Making The Pivot Pin

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!
