Re: Bolt on Keel

The Ericson bolt on keel is fine. The keel stub in the Ericson is solid glass unlike some Catalinas and others that used plywood in some models. The salt water could simply be from the prop shaft packing gland. A proper survey should give you a decent idea of whether or not that keel should be re-bedded.
