Re: CS30 Keel Corrosion

Thanks for the reply!

Found this article that seems to explain it:
Practical Sailor - Keels: Minor Maintenance and Repair - Tips Article

Possibly an interaction between a high copper bottom paint and the lead.

The keelbolts passed inspection, but I'll follow up with the surveyor.

Thanks!
