Centerboard Stop Pin - What to "Glue" it with?
I am replacing the centerboard stop pin in my Montgomery 17 and I have been looking online for abou 30 minutes now where people have refurbished their centerboards and I can't find any reference to what they use to hold the stop pin in place with.
It doesn't bolt or screw, instead it is about a 3/8" solid pin that fits tightly in a hole bored through the "hollow" keel. When I removed the old bent one it simply took some pounding with a hammer and it slid out. The boond shouldn't need to be permanent since they need to be replaced if they are bent/broken.
I am thinking maybe a liberal amount of 4200 on the pin should do the trick? I have some already so hopefully this will sufice.
Do you agree or disagree?
Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
