Re: Catalina 27 Keel stub and bolts

Thanks. I initially missed the drawing recommendation of running 6" up the stub and onto the bilge sides. I may go up a little higher for some added strength. This repair is done from the inside by cutting into the bottom of the bilge around to keel bolts, removing the top layers glass and then the rotted plywood in the stub. The outside repair of the stub-keel joint (Catalina smile) is completely different than what I am referring to.
