Re: Keel joint rust?

Update for Terra Nova...

Keel off (all 11,000 lbs) and in repose... Studs look spectacular, although they spent zero time wet with seawater, and I expected this... Cleaned, Stripped, and Epoxy bed already performed... 1 more lift to 4200 goo, set, snug, wait, torque, then fair...

TN- ....

I most certainly did have help... No way could I have done without it either...

3/4" breaker bar, 40 inch long... A BRUTE...

The lift guy set the boat and "took the weight off"...

By the time I got done sweating... The entire boat "raised" 4 inches off the keel...
