Clipper Marine 21 Swing Keel

I can't seem to get the screw through the keel housing and keel. How do I know it is down all the way? We took on a few gallons of water on our first sail, it seemed like the water was sloshing up near the winch! we plugged the screw holes with cork near the bow but it was coming in in a different section of the boat! Please help?

I'm not too familiar with the Clipper Marine 21 but regardless, I'm having some trouble understanding what you mean. What screw are talking about that won't go through the keel housing and keel? Are you perhaps talking about a centerboard trunk cap, that might not be in place? Water normally sloshes up and around the CB Trunk when you are sailing relatively fast, but it is normally blocked from coming into the boat by some sort of a cap on the trunk.

Check the position of the down CB when you are at the dock and mark your control or CB wire.

Great find, Gord! Having sold Clippers for a brief period of time, I have earned the eternal enmity of the original owners and a measure of bad karma too. My total sympathy to anyone who is trying to keep one going today.
