Re: Keel Bolt Questions from new owner

I havenít figured out how to level the bilge yet.* To be effective, the bilge would have to gently slope from aft to forward.* The problem is doing this without adversely affecting something else.* This could probably be done with glass, but I donít have any experience with that. *Another project for another day.* My immediate problem is fixing the mess the guy made when he re-gelcoated the area under the tank.* The first application cracked in several places.* I suspect it was applied too thick, got too hot, shrunk up and cracked.* His fix was to lay in some more gelcoat which also has some hairline cracks.* I donít want to just keep laying in gelcoat.* I think grinding out and fixing each crack is the best thing to do at this point.* *
