I made a new plywood backing piece for the yuloh support block and epoxied the pivot pin in place to form an integral unit.
Before attaching the unit to the transom I must drill a hole into the shaft of the yuloh to receive the pinhead. It is my intention to line the hole with epoxy to form a cup that matches the shape and size of the pinhead. I can best do this by inserting the pinhead into the epoxy, but I must first apply Vaseline to the pinhead to prevent the epoxy from adhering to it. I’ll have to devise a method of supporting the block and pin to keep them stationary until the epoxy hardens.
