Keel length?

I have a San Juan 7.7. Can anyone tell me how long the keel is from the hull to the tip of the keel, so I don't have to go under the water and measure it? The transporter wants to know. all I know is the boat is supposed to draw four feet. Thanx!

Re: Keel length?

hmmm sounds like you'll have to go in the water... that's not a common measurement. do you have a hoist nearby? you could always just lift it up, measure, and drop it back in. (hint: you don't want to actually drop it back in, but rather lower it slowly and under some semblance of control. i've tried the dropping method before, it didn't work...)

Specs for San Juan 7.7

You can probably guesstimate the keel length from the drawing.
