Re: Cortez 16

Well I discovered my first issue. The hull has a crack in it where the swing keel drops through. When I learn to post pics I will show you. Should be a basic repair however since this is such a high stress area is there a better than original way to reinforce it. I would guess the damage was caused from the swing keel dropping violently or side loading a deployed keel in heavy sailing or running aground. I will take a better look this weekend. The good news is no leaks inside the boat.
