    I saw that bit Ronnie, as well as the longer threaded pin. I'll go one of those two routes. Enjoying your reporting from France. Hope you're having a great time. john

    Off topic, but where might one find Ronnie's reports?

    It pains me to link to that place, but you asked:

    Ronnie's current gig.

    This is another way to mount the pin. I have this on my Express 27, has not been farther than the Farallons, but seems to work fine. http://tinyurl.com/cc2njg9

    I like the parsimony and simplicity! Ruben Gabriel generously showed me Rushmore and I saw the bit that Chris at Svendsens Metal shop fabricated, basically the pin was welded to a "U" shaped stainless piece that wraps around the top of the tiller.
