Re: Replace cotter pins with welding rod

Plus they can seize up, which is really aggravating when you want to adjust things. I have lock nuts on the lifelines on my current boat and they are seized - It's going to be a job to back them off without screwing the threads.

Some sort of pin is more secure and can't seize.
