Thanks for your response.

We have a retractable keel on our 6.9 . We hit something with the keel, and the bottom half of the keel bent 90 degrees. It was a real drag!!

We had to cut the keel into pieces to remove it from the boat, but managed to leave the steel bar that anchored into the lead in tact.

If we have to we could rebuild it, but would prefer just to replace it. Any ideas where a replacement can be found? (S2 is a dead end, no inventory of old keels).
