Hi, thanks, I remember hearing about the Bav keel issues, although not worried about the Bav keel issues as this yacht was from an earlier time when Bavs were built to Lloyds A1 certification
. The problem boats were much later when Bav went into high volume production. They are very different boats from the earlier ones.
As for the questions:
It is the forward bolts.
There are 6 bolts in total.
It is a fin keel.
The boat is out of the water
, but about 1,500 miles away from me.
I dont know the answers to the other questions.
