Oday Sailboat Perplexed

81 oday 30ft, I was preparing the keel for paint and doing some sanding and scraping and it appears that the keel is covered with fiberglass? Or could that be a repair or someone going all out to have a protected surface from rusting. i would have expected it would have been steel or lead. anyone familiar with this one?

Re: oday sailboat perplexed

Many boats of that era had an encapsulated keel?

Re: Oday Sailboat Perplexed

I believe that the O’Day 30 used an “encapsulated keel”; but they used a separate keel molding, and then bonded that to the hull (no bolts).
