Looking for a swing keel pivot pin - pivot pin brackets for an IP31
 
Hey,

We're looking for a swing keel (Centerboard) pivot pin - pivot pin brackets for an 31' Island Packet.
I know we can get them from Island Packet for $350 but am wondering if there are any alternatives? We are located in Ft Lauderdale in case there is a company that will custom weld these things and can combine the haul out and installation at a reasonable price. Was otherwise considering doing it myself at the Playboy marine.

" Playboy marine." There are much worst places to work on your boat.

Any drawings? What material? Dimensions?

My guess would be that the keel is made of fiberglass (Extra strong triaxial glass with a grid structure.) and the pin/brackets are made of stainless steel but I'm don't really know. We had it on deck to do a survey and didn't have time to drill or scrape the old bracket. Looks like the outer part of the bracket, from what I can remember, is about 1.5" - 2". I would guess that the actual pin would be around 3/4 - 1" ????
I'll send an email to Island Packet and request more information.
