Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

A sur­pris­ing num­ber of read­ers knew the spe­cific role of this nau­ti­cal hinge fea­tured in the last edi­tion of Tassie Liv­ing.

The bot­tom bracket with the pro­trud­ing pin is a pin­tle, and the top bracket sit­ting over the pin, is a gud­geon.

The pin­tle and gud­geon set is used to at­tach a rud­der to the hull of a boat, al­low­ing it to swing.

Last week’s nau­ti­cal know-alls in­cluded, Betty Jones, Phil Shep­herd, Keith Brown, Peter Brown, Peter Flem­ing, Les­ley Grano and Ron Akhurst.
