Re: Keel Locking Bolt Problem

kwr13, Did you find a solution to your keel locking bolt problem?

I am a new owner of a venture 17 and I have the exact same problem. Today I even rigged a line around the bottom of the keel so that when it was lowered I could pull from the front of the boat. I was unsuccessful in pulling the keel far enough to locate a hole in the keel that would lock it down. I am at a loss at what to do. It looks like I will have to pull the keel out of the boat this next winter to sort it out.
