Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Chessie flyer centerboard pin

Postby Alf B » Fri Jul 06, 2018 9:26 pm


I started building the Chessie Flyer last month. Frames are mounted on the building frame, stem & sternpost with breast hooks made, and now working on the centerboard trunk and keel. Never having had a centerboarder before, I am curious about the plan specifying a "standard steel" pin. I know some old-timers that claim black iron will outlast galvanized, as well as stainless, in a continuously submerged salt water situation. With the board being sheet steel, I can see that a bronze pin might be a galvanic problem. I would love to hear from anyone that has direct experience with this, and how it worked out over time.
