  • nice mods!
    where did you get the pins or did you build them yourself?
  • Nice! Yes, please- details on the pins, size tubing, etc. That's looking like a must try. Sa-lick.

  • Cool. Would like to see pictures of your house boat machine shop. Is that in the basement?

    Rudder Pins - Built from scratch -
    https://virtustube-my.sha…FVtvqLTtetL7n-Q?e=YWsmC9

    The only thing I would do differently is mill 2 slots instead of a long continuous slot. The hole size for the roll pins would need to be enlarged. I started out planning to drill and tap those holes and use SS Shoulder Bolts, but drilling and tapping SS with a tiny tap wasn't working out. So I over-drilled the hole and drove in the roll pins, which work fine. Note that these roll pins are to be driven in while the rudder pin assy. is installed on the boat. Once the roll pins are driven in, the rudder pin assy. cannot be removed, which is what I wanted. If you NEED to remove the rudder pin assy., you can grab the roll pins with vise grips and pinch and pull.

    Haha... I have some basic tools at the houseboat, but I used the Milling machine where I work for the slot and did the rest at home with basic metalworking tools. The "basement" of the houseboat is full of holding tanks, HVAC, water heater, etc.

    thanks! :)
  • I'd like to see some video of the drill propulsion system in action. That is very clever.
