Minikeel-hull conncection

We're rebuilding my Bahia 46 that was wrecked in Typhoon Haiyan, and we have ordered a mini keel from F-P but have not figured out yet how to rebuild the hull so that the mini keel fits it.

I have requested the info from F-P but have not yet heard a thing.

Any knowledge to offer on the subject?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Kelly, I just checked out your blog and offer my heartfelt condolences to you.

FP can tend to be a little reluctant about giving out their trade secrets. Good luck with the repairs.
