Re: The Saga of the Sad Swinging Keel

Is that keel solid steel? There are a lot of venture owners forums out there, and I'd bet you can get the info on the keel's composition pretty easily. Once you've established that, figure out whether it is encapsulated or solid. If it is solid, those cracks would make me a little nervous. If it is encapsulated, then Denise's suggestions seem spot on.
