Re: wet keel

I assume you have a fiberglass encapsulated lead keel?

I had that problem on my first boat. Water just kept seeping out of the holes I drilled in the bottom, so I couldn't even seal the holes. I went out and bought a cheap mini shop vac, taped the hose over the holes, and left the vacuum running overnight. When I came back to the boat there was no more water seeping out and it was dry. I repaired the holes, and never had another problem.
