Keel Repair 2015

20150418_15542120150418_155310 This is the time of year, just before launch that I need to do some repairs to the keel because of wear and tear and accumulated battle scars from last years Gulf of St. Lawrence trip.

I’ve had to dig out the old caulking in the keel to hull joint to re-seal that area. I also ground out the knicks and dents in the coating of the steel keel to be able to “fair” it and refinish it.
