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.

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

Any drawings? What material? Dimensions?

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.
