Bronze bolts are real hard to come by in these parts. I need some to bolt a lead keel to the boat (new construction). I do have some old 1" bronze propellor shafts that I was thinking I could cut to length and tap. Before I run off and buy the tap and stuff, I just wanted to check with you regarding this pipedream of mine.
And while your on the phone...I hear about "crevice corrision" regarding s/s .
What about using 1" s/s threaded rod instead? The boat is a 24'9" Canoe Yawl, strip planked. ( I plan to embed the bolts...and probably everything else! in our favorite modern googe.
Your thoughts and this forum are always appreciated.
