Re: Keel Bolts Torque Setting

Hi Anthony,

If the data can't be found from owners, then you're going to have to go with torque values for the fastener size... More common than not due to the less than stellar record keeping and dissemination of such by the marine industry!

There's some data here I'll find in a search...
Size?
Assuming studs coming up through the hull?
