Re: CS36 Merlin Wing Keel
Design or flaw
Looking at a 1989 CS36 Merlin wing keel and wondering about a filler strip or some type of wedge that appears approx 1/3 of the length of the front of the keel where the keel and hull join
This strip starts out approx 3/4 of an
inch falling to nothing towards the back
I have a 1988 Merlin with the patented Hydrokeel. Bought it new and still have it. There is a 1/2" gap at the front of the keel and this is normal. Just fill with some filler. Not caused by grounding. Came from the builder that way and I saw the boat every weekend during the build.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
