Re: Help pinpointing a leak
hill, there's no such thing as "reasonable" until you find out what the problem is. In general, keels don't just get loose, something has to cause the problem.
If they lower the keel and find damage...what's reasonable? What's the extent of the damage? Cracked hull? Keelbolts eaten by electrolysis and needing replacement? No one knows until the keel is down, or at least until the boat is hauled.
