Re: Keel Inspection

The good news is that all the keel bolts are seated solidly in the keel and the stringers are solid as well. The bad news is that there is still a little lateral play in the keel at the shoulders of the stub. I don't see a need to sister the bolts, but what do readers think of reinforcing the bilge with fiberglass at the point where it forms the shoulders of the keel stub? My thinking is that the original construction of the hull at that point was simply too light. Thoughts?
