Here is a quick shot of the centerboard pin. I used some epoxy with graphite in it to glue the pin to the plate. I did thicken it first, that's why it looks grey.
I also realized that I filled the holes with microballons. I'll want to drill those back out and use wood flour thickened epoxy instead.

Alas, I did have to take it apart so that I could glue it.
I put the bolt and pin in to make sure they everything lined up correctly.
Once it was dry, it was time to clip the dowels with a japanese flush cut saw. How I love that flush cut saw for things like this.

It then got sanded a bit.

I hung it and painted it a few days later.
