i have an extra bow norman pin, but i need the longer rear norman pin for my 13' whaler. any ideas on how to make the shorter pin work? does anybody want to trade a rear pin for a bow pin? thanks

You can get a 3/8"x12" piece of bronze rod and a 3/8-24 die from Mcmaster-Carr and redue the Norman pins yourself. I had to do it on my 13 because they had been bent. Not a problem!

Yeah it just unscrews. Threaded rod is called Allthread.

fittongr--

Would you sell the bow norman pin outright?

Please advise.

I need one for my 1962 Sport 13 project.

Thanks!

firebrand, with advice and pics from dave thomas i found i could modify the shorter bow norman pin to be used on the stern. this matter was settled on the "mods and repairs post", where it should have been posted in the first place. so i don't have an extra bow norman pin. sorry, good luck.
