Re: Encapsulated Keel?
If true...that explains things doesn't it? Though, the keel in post #7 is very narrow.
Didn't know bolt on was an option with Ericson. Do you have the link?
Not anymore, but 30 seconds of searching for Ericson 38 keel bolt will find you plenty of your own. I trust the guys over at ericsonyachts.org and their dozens of photos of Ericson keel bolts.
Since Bob is here: that keel shape seems really odd to me. It minimizes weight farthest from the hull, the opposite of most keel designs. Any thoughts on why it would be that way? It did make it easy to ID the boat.
