Here we are again. I was unable to spend much time on the yuloh, but I was able to determine at what point and at what angle I should drill a pivot hole into its shaft.
Originally Derek placed his yuloh in a rowlock that slid into a hole in a block of wood fitted to the starboard side of the transom. The hole in the block was 300 millimetres from the centre of the top of the transom.
My plan is to permanently fix a pivot pin into the same block, and bond it to the transom where it was before. I’m not keen on additions such as this, but I believe the yuloh will function better with the pivot pin angled away from the transom and clear of it.
All of this is theoretical, and I’m hoping it will work in practice.
