NZ - Bonito Trojan 7.5m (25ft) trailer sailer - keel

Hi all

anyone with knowledge of the drop keel on Bonito Trojan?

My yacht is currently in slings while I have some work done on the trailer to make it road legal.

Since it's a reasonably physical haul to pull the keel up at the end of a day's sailing I want to do some maintenance on the keel and lifting mechanism while I've got good access.

Hoped someone might have experience of this and can offer some insights and advice or photographs.

I'm going to drop the keel down for an inspection - might need a paint - then with some tyres under the keel I'll release the lifting line so I can remove the top cover and inspect the pulleys.

Worst case is I'll need to lift the keel out through the cabin roof.

Advice, comments, suggestions appreciated.
