Re: Cal 21 Refit
Well this is a kinda old thread but since it is about my boat I figured this is the place to put some information about how my project is going.
When I got the boat it had absolutely no interior over the winter in fit new structural bulkheads and am nearly done the support for the compression post. Unfortunately I have no pictures of this part of the project as I didn't have a smart phone yet.
When I was first looking at the boat I noticed that the keel was weeping rust so I knew I would have to address it before I put her in the water.
Here are a few pictures of what I found
It looks as if water intruded at the locking pin and as the rust expanded the keel cracked.
Any suggestions on how to avoid having exposed steel in the pivot and the locking pin hole when I put her back together?
