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
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
, comments, suggestions appreciated.
