Re: Keelbolts on Buchan 37'

This line:
as was the interior lead ballast of 5500 lbs

From this article:
48 North - Buchan 37

seems to indicate that this is an encapsulated keel. The keel and hull are all one piece from the mold and lead is added to the inside of the boat afterward and usually glassed in place.

Re: Keelbolts on Buchan 37'

that would mean that I have no keelbolts then I assume. That helps out alot. I somehow missed that line in the article. Nice!
