Keel Re-bed

We just did a Re-bed of the fin keel of our Beneteau first 456. It is a 9000 pound lead keel. After 23 years the 5200 held the keel even after removing the nuts. And we were able to see the studs condition. It is a 1984 beneteau and luckily the studs were in amazing condition.

We were very afraid of the studs corrosion due to all the horror stories we found on the web. But I guess it is like when you get sick and look for info in the web. Most people who share their experiences are those who went through a difficult time. So we wanted to share our good experience.

Actually we did ground but at 30 mm each stud I think is overkill. The seal was awesome. We had the boat hanging without all the nuts and still had to massage the 5200 with De-Bond cut through to get it loose.

Humm...my wife insists that it's impolite to say I told you so, but...

I TOLD YOU SO!

(So much for some of the BS about Bene's eh?)

Well the BENE BS will continue every time you pass a slow heavy sturdy slow "well constructed" slow heavy custom built boat.(:
