New Keel Bolts for 1990 Beneteau??

I have a First 41S5 1990 with Iron winged keel. The keel bolts heads are rusty . I treated them with Zinc and the epoxy several years ago and that stopped the rust. BUt maybe its a good idea to replace them while at yard for bottom job???

Re: New Keel Bolts for 1990 Beneteau??

Maybe its a good idea to pull one or two while the boat is on the hard. I assume these are steel bolts that thread into the cast iron.

If the bolts have not wasted and the threads are good, goop them up and treat the others. However, realize that this could turn into a major project, like renewing all the bolts and the threads in the cast iron. After 34 years, its worth a look.
