Tiller pins

I am wondering whether to indulge in some extravagance and buy a new tiller pin. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the old one, except it isn't a skeleton. I saw a fabulous tiller pin on the back of NB Puffin the other week; it was a canon! I think I can justify a new one, by saving it for 'special occassions' after all every boater (except me) must have a tiller pin for best. I am wondering whether to learn how to make my own - this strikes me as a very good idea and a wonderful opportunity to avoid doing anything to my bedroom.

Have to say I rather like your current on. Perhaps you could have a tricorn shaped one as i) it would be piratical and ii) a tribute to Weeping Cross...

You make it sound rather as though I'm dead (as opposed to just undead).

I seem to remember that you have a spare tiller pin, currently residing somewhere in the depths of the Rochdale Canal....
