Re: Keel: a.k.a Water Bucket

I might just patch over the hole with a few layers of epoxy and glass for this year. Go sailing. In the fall remove the patch and grind out as much as necessary. Next spring after it's had all winter to dry out fill with thickened epoxy and glass over. Also make sure you can find out where the water is getting in. Many times the problem is in the bilge where the ballast was resin-ed over at the factory.
I sail.
