Keel Scrape

After signing up to keep my sailboat in the water for the winter season we had a grounding. There are some scrapes on the bottom of the wing keel. I would prefer to leave the boat in the water at the marina until the spring then haul and repair rather than hauling now and having to pay for dry storage. I have been advised that this will be fine, but have some lingering concerns. The bilge is dry and there are no signs of leakage. Any advice?

Depending on what the keel is. Ours is steel, but lead can take more abuse. Not sinking? - If you wait, just more repair to be done in the spring.

Absolutely NO PROBLEM on your external lead keel.
