is an East Coast
Triton (encapsulated lead keel
, no false keel). It's been in the water
for a year after a major refit
. No (obviously) visible cracks/holes/crazing seen while it was on the hard
for 6 months. No groundings or bumps since launch.
I'm not sure how but I have water
seeping in through the spider cracks around the forward u-bolt (1 of 2 used to lower the lead ballast into the keel
cavity by builder). Bolt is rusted badly now and causing more bulging/spider cracks. The aft bolt (lower in bilge) also has spider cracks but less corrosion
and no seepage.
Any idea what's going on here and what the fix is?
