    Hi all
    I am restoring a S&S Dolphin 24, a keel/centerboard design. (1960). The bronze CB was fastened into to keel slot with a press fit 3/4 " dia bronze pin driven through the solid lead keel that was a devil to knock out. I want to fashion a system where by I can easily remove the new pin so that I can fully drop the CB without a hassle.

    Any ideas or sources you can pass on? Thanks
