I am not sure off the construction of my keel
. No problems, but nice to know.
My boat is glassfiber(grp?), lead keel
. The sump has a flat surface, no keel bolts
. The former owner told me that the hull
was handmade in one piece with a hollow grp keel, that was then filled up with bits of lead and resin.
It has been grounded at some point, and a small chunck in the front end of the keel was lost
and repaired, without any other damage. This winter i removed the paint
around the damage, and what i saw was solid lead?
After what the former owner told me, i was supposed to find fiberglass
and not lead! And especially not solid lead but pieces of lead in resin!
So how does this add up?
Maybe there ARE bolts, but covered with resin? This would take a lot of resin, and for what reason?
And if the keel is solid, why cant i see where the keel and hull
are joined together?
The boat is Swedish made and the building quality seems excelent, and very solid.
