Good advice all. The only thing I would add is that with all the glass damage to the keel, it must have been a very hard grounding and there is real potential for additional damage to have been done to the hull structure itself (stringers, tabbing, cracks in the laminate. Suggest you look at all of this before investing in repairs...or maybe ask a surveyor in Tortola to look at just that aspect of the boat. Hopefully it is just as "simple" as Sailormann suggests as it WILL be worthwhile to do that repair. Good luck!
