Replace cotter pins with welding rod
BoatUS July Seaworthy Magazine
arrived in my mailbox yesterday. There was an interesting article on inspecting older sailboats
In the article they mentioned replacing cotter pins with welding rod. I've never heard of this before. What do you guys think of this? What are the recommended specs on the welding rod? Where do you find it? Any tips on installation, or do you just cut the right length and bend it on?
