Re: Repairing keel with concrete

I am in awe. It looks like concrete ballast expanded due to water intrusion. Also, folks, is that pox in the glass surrounding the cboard?

Re: Repairing keel with concrete

Definitely water intrusion. It looks like hairline cracks and then water seeped under fiberglass. Concrete does become stable after chipping back alittle.
I wondering if there is a product that can seal the bottom enough to use the boat.

Re: Repairing keel with concrete

I have a Luger Southwind 21', with similar issues. Retractable center board, non-supported fiberglass center board trunk, and busted up cement for ballast. Put it in the water to check watertight status....

Naphoto,

That looks like glass fiber .......... so you need to fill & do a fiberglass repair. Tricky spot to fair & smooth out.
