Re: Removing Swing Keel Advice Sought

Thank you all - your advice is greatly appreciated! The marina got the boat on blocks Tuesday, and I took a trip there yesterday. They did a great job, and the boat is up nice and high (see pic), which will make the work much easier. As it's set up, I figure I can either let the keel hang down and work on it (then removing the pivot bolt and working on the rest secondary), OR remove it and work on it one side at a time. Should I smooth it off and paint it? Or strip it to the metal and paint it? Or (as seems most likely) there's a lot more to it, than either of those.
