Keel Length

Does anyone know the actual keel size (length and depth). We've just been chatting with the haulout yard and they want these dimensions to get the cradle right. We have just arrived back into the marina and it is not a good place to go over the side for fear of catching some dreaded disease

Cheers

Re: Keel length

Lift the cabin sole and measure the length. The depth will be 30" +/-.

Yes we did think of that but are back in Oz (not on the boat), ended up doing a guestimate off a side-shot taken on the hard in Raiatea, haulout guys seemed happy with that.

Cheers
